Basel Flohmarkt

Short notice, well aware of it but this Saturday ( and any Saturday ) there is a flea market in Basel.

Just fun to meet up, have a chat, walk around, browse and have a bite/ drink

I was told the wurst weggen (sausage rolls) are a winner

If you are up for it, let me know.

We will meet outside of the Basel SBB Bahnhof at 11.30 am..any suggestions where?


RSVP'd Yes: 6 (6 members and No guests) RSVP'd Maybe: 3 (3 members and No guests)
  • Begga - 11:30 sounds much better
  • Red64 - Since I have to go past Petersplatz to get to the SBB Might just see you there!
  • rjhbirm
RSVP'd No: 1
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Re: Flohmarkt (Flea market) Basel

I thought it all started on the 26th of March. Does the Flea Market in Basel (Peterplatz) start this Saturday onwards?

Says here that it is.


E.T.A - Pah. Beaten to it. That's the last helpful thing I'm doing. What a waste of three minutes. I could have been posting pictures of dead bunnies.

Re: Flohmarkt (Flea market) Basel

Since its confirmed that its on ( thank you Mirfield ) it would be a great way of meeting all of you for once outside of a Pub

None the less no one says we can't stop at one on our way up or down

Just hope one of us speaks a bit of German,just in case someone wants to buy something

Re: Flohmarkt (Flea market) Basel

Do I have a ride to KFC? I'm not sure whether I thanked too many wrong people ...

The fleamarket is fun because every now and again there is something interesting and it seems to be completely random when you ask for the price whether it's (a) wow, that's cheap, I'll take it or (b) what? Did you say "hundred"? Are you crazy?

It's like a lottery without the ticket price but with relatively rubbish prizes. OK, so it's not like a lottery at all.

It's like a shop but with more choice, second hand stuff, and no marked prices. OK, so it's not like a shop at all.

It's quite a large square and last time I went there was pretty much everything from trinkets to furniture to 1970's cheesy vinyl.

Re: Flohmarkt (Flea market) Basel

I've popped along to Petersplatz on a couple of Saturdays and it is a great market, if that's your thing.
Especially if, like me, you've a yearning for old random comically-covered vinyl There are some fine treats and all seems good quality.

Re: Flohmarkt (Flea market) Basel

Id love to go but I already made plans
I have been a seller there twice and it is a lot of fun but really hit or miss. The first time it was sunny with lots of people and I made around 200 CHF , the second time I only made 80 CHF and I guess it was because it was not such a nice day and not a lot of people.
Good luck!
