Every local suburban market in Melbourne has a touch of the Flea Market to it. There are very few that specialise in true Flea-ness, although several stand out as opportunities for the eccentric collector, or an interesting way to spend a weekend morning.
Station Street, Camberwell
The most well known flea market in the Melbourne area. Casual stall renters and regulars alike display their wares ranging from classic vinyl records and 70s era furniture, to vintage fur coats and one-of-a-kind artwork.
El Dorado’s Kings and Beggars Market
25-31 Boundary Road, Laverton North
This market is a bit further out of the city, and advertises itself as a place to find “Trash and Treasure”. However, experience can attest to the fact that the majority of wares on offer would fall into the former category.
400 Mahoney’s Road, Campbellfield
Saturdays and Sundays 9am-5pm
The largest semi-permanent, ongoing flea market in the state. Attached to a nearby amusement park that has seen better days, the sellers here are a mix of regulars with set stalls, and casual renters with yard-sale type offerings. While the clientele here is mostly made up of those from rural areas who have travelled to visit, this market can be a fun distraction for a few hours and highly entertaining for children.
