Sungei Road Thieves’ Market
A step back in time, Sungei Road Thieves’ Market is not Singapore’s most glamorous location (as the name would suggest) but it is a great flea market, and an excellent place for retro homeware and electronics. If you’re looking for things that are vintage and a little bit off-beat, this is an excellent place to start.
Jalan Besar near Sungei Road, between Kelantan Road and Weld Road
Zouk Flea & Easy
Trendy nightclub by night, hip flea market by day (on some Sundays, anyway), Zouk is an eclectic market with a good line in both vintage and branded goods, with hipster clothing and quirky homeware prominent. DJs play tunes and you can grab a drink and a bite to eat too.
Quarterly on Sundays 2–7pm
7 Jiak Kim Street
Flea Fly Flo Fun
An indie-style market for those looking for trendy clothing and off-beat bric-a-brac, Flea Fly Flo Fun is smaller than some other markets in town, but no less interesting for that. Local DJs spin tunes to get you in the mood.
