Wednesday Flea Market


  • SHOP / Flea Markets & Markets

A beach town situated in North of Goa, Anjuna became the hide-out for Western 'hippies' arriving in the 60's. After running out of money but not wanting to leave, these travelers sold and bartered their possessions, everything from clothes, guitars, jeweler, art, music and more. This was the beginning of the now popular 'flea' market at Anjuna, and what started as "a Hippie-exchange" is now one of Anjuna's most popular attractions.  Srategically situated on the sandy stretch overlooking the Arabian Sea, today's vast and bustling Market, which transpires every Wednesday during the peak season (October-April), practically takes up the entire stretch of beach. The Market offers everything and anything you could think of auctioned by merchants and gypsies from across India selling locally produced apparel, spices, tea, coffee, jewellery, hand-made toys, souvenirs and much more. Over the years, the international seasonal residents of Goa have also opened kiosks here to sell imported fashion as well as their own unique designs that largely prodcued in Goa.
