Love a bargain or a vintage find? Here is the list of the best flea markets in Singapore, so get to it.
Zouk’s Flea and Easy
Singapore’s most celebrated stylists, fashion designers, editors, store owners and personalities empty their wardrobes at this flea market. Selling items ranging from $2 – $400, new & pre-loved items, there will be something for every budding fashionista and hardcore bargain hunter!

Where: Zouk, 17 Jiak Kim St, Singapore
Sungei Road Market
Also known as ‘Thieves Market’, this is one of Singapore’s oldest and longest running markets. As per the name, do expect some of the items to be some-what dodgy, but there is the opportunity to find great vintage jewellery, old records and antique household goods.
When: 1-7pm everyday
Where: Sungei Road Market, Sungei Road, Singapore
The Green Mart
A ‘green carnival’ with each seller offering green products, fair trade products and organic materials. Of course these guys are also encouraging bring-your-own-bag (BYOB) with a free drink as a reward.
When: 1 Mar 2010, 9-5pm
Where: Aramsa – The Garden Spa, Bishan Park 2
Lime Flea Market
Great for quirky, one-of-a kind jewellery and accessories as well as second hand clothing and imported goods. Expect a younger local crowd.
Where: Lime Flea Market, *Scape ( the youth hub behind Cathay Orchard Cineleisure)
MAAD stands for Market of Artists and Designers, a place to sell and buy creative works. This monthly market draws an artsy crowd with hand-made clothing, accessories and quirky toys.
When: First Sat & Sun of every month, 11am-6pm
Where: MAAD Market, Red Dot Design Museum, 28 Maxwell Road
Weekly Flea Markets
There are a number of weekly flea markets around town. Here you will find local designers with clothing, jewellery and accessories as well as second hand clothing and imported goods.

The H.E.A.R.T Market
This handcrafted, entrepreneur, artists and retail talents (HEART) market is a socially conscious market promoting youth entrepreneurship.
When: Every second weekend of the month

These guys run flea-markets at the Singapore Art Museum. They are currently taking a break, and promise more fleas in late 2010… patience is a virtue they say!
