Flea market is also known as Garage Sale / Yard Sale / Second Hand Market
Flea market (second hand market) is a market where people come together to sell stuff that they no longer need. The items being sold can sometimes be new and unused and sometimes be used. In Dubai and UAE in general, such second hand markets need approvals to be conducted and they cannot be organised by everyone. Only authorised companies or institutions can organise such Flea markets.
The flea markets are usually a good place to buy stuff because you get maximum value for your money without paying premium and you support the environment by buying used and contributing to the global push for reducing wastage and unnecessary production and accompanying pollution. Here is the list of Flea Markets that happen regularly in Dubai.
