Bargain hunters in Dubai, you might want to wander in the nearest park in your area as there could be a flea market happening. The annual Dubai Flea Market is here once again, and it’s spread around in different parks across the city.
The flea market is a place where you can buy or sell pre-loved and second hand items. Here, you can find used books, toys, DVDs, clothes, accessories, antiques, furniture, and even household appliances. In other words, you can find almost everything!
Buy and Sell Second Hand Items in Dubai
The Dubai Flea Market was first launched in April 2008, when a group of young expats founded the “Flea Market Cult.” Today, their group is more formally known as Green Spot Entertainment, which plans to expand the “Flea Market Community” in the region.
According to the group’s website, the “green” in their name stands for sustainability and selling (not throwing) unwanted items. “Green spot” refers to the holding of events in green environments — ensuring a friendly and healthy atmosphere for the community. “We create markets in public parks to increase the entertainment aspect of having a family day out in green environment, enjoying the nature and the fresh air,” the team shared on their website.
