Flea it

Love a bargain or a vintage find? Here is the list of the best flea markets in Singapore, so get to it.

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

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
