Basel flea markets

The City of Basel offers two flea markets, which are held in Petersplatz every Saturday and in Barfüsserplatz every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month.


The flea market in Petersplatz is a popular Saturday meeting place for all those who love second-hand goods. From fine antiques to dungarees for the little ones, there is everything you need for daily life - at extremely competitive prices of course. Plus, children can sell their toys for free in the middle of the square.
