Street Market

Molfetta's official street market is held every week on Thursday morning. However, on Sundays various smaller markets pop up here and there around town, usually near the sea. While good finds can be made on a wide variety of items at the weekly market, these Sunday markets do not appeal to me because they tend to sell cheaply made things that break the first time you use them.

I think these Sunday market are about the same everywhere.

Sunday or "flea" markets here often feature items for sale that their owners no longer want or need. Baby strollers, car seats, toys, clothes that are too small.

I agree with Vogon Poet, all the same.

If they're cheap enough, I don't mind that at all, especially for trendy things that you won't want to use after a few months.

Whenever my mother sees a big mess or clutter she'll still call it "mezz u giovedi" referring to the Thursday fair

Markets are something I miss so much here. I could spend hours here just wandering from stall to stall.

Open markets tend to be knockoffs and cheaply made; sometimes, though, it offers young people's creative efforts.
