If you are nodding silently in agreement, check out our list of weekend bazaars and flea markets which happens every weekend or once every few months. Who knows, you might find something to call it yours at the end of the fun day out!
1. Amcorp Mall Flea Market
Instead of going to the mall for the usual brand and items, Amcorp Mall’s flea market provides a different environment for shoppers. It is not catered for the usual shoppers, it is for collectors of vintage and unconventional items, cost conscious and bargain hunters. Instead, it is one of the biggest flea markets with temporary stalls offering a huge variety of items from clothes, figurines, movie posters, vinyl records, comics, stamps, coins and silverware.
Though there are stuffs that were previously owned by the seller or someone else, the items are still in good condition and is sold at a reasonable price. The flea market is open every Saturday and Sunday. We recommend going on a Sunday if you want explore more things. Saturday is good too if you are not into squeezing with people and looking for a more relaxing walk.
2. Sunway Giza Weekend Bazaar
Sunway Giza Weekend Bazaar provides you a lifestyle shopping experience here in Sunway Giza Mall every Friday to Sunday.
The market has about 20-30 stalls featuring a number of online blogshops such as Brollies, ILoveSnackFood, The Survival Store, Soak Republic and many more. The products range from dream catchers, accessories, local designer clothes, stationaries, bags and shoes. A lot of items here are handmade and are one of a kind, which only means the possibility of you seeing another person with the same accessories or clothes is very low.
3. Le Tresor Street Market
Le Tresor Street Market is more widely known to the locals as The Curve Street Market. It is an outdoor market located at The Street area of the mall. Like other markets, it mostly has female clothing and accessories with a handful of booths catered to the men. You can also head to this market to get your nail arts or henna and sometimes there are stalls selling cupcakes too.
Each side of the market are lined up with restaurants or bars and some of this bars will have a live band in the afternoon (Men, please take note. You can bring your girlfriends here and shop while you have a cup of drink). The only downside is that, when it rains, the stalls will be closed till the rain stops.
4. ABC Market, Plaza Mont Kiara
ABC stands for Arts, Bric-a-Brac and Crafts market promotes Malaysian arts and crafts to the public and it provides a place for people to clear their collectibles.
As the name suggests, arts and crafts are what is popular here but it also brings in new and pre-owned fashion items, antiques, books, potted plants, pets and car accessories. Although it is outdoor, the market is made cooler from the green shade and misty fans.
5. Subang Parade Bazaar
This market is a great place to get gifts for birthdays, Christmas, baby showers or any other occasions. Since it is not a touristy place, you will not find any hiked-up prices and rude vendors. With its lively surroundings and wide variety of affordable goods, drop by and join the others to find that one item you would love to decorate your personal space with.
