Homburg Flea Market




Check out the Homburg Flea market Held 1st Saturday of the month! One of the larger markets in the area, you will find a mix of everything! Just 30 min away...


WHEN: 1st Sat of Month
TIME: 0800-1300
WHERE: Rathaus Am Forum 6 Homburg
Just up the A6






It's very easy to find!! It can be chilly early in the morning, so be prepared and dress layers! Parking is all around... there are designated spots for parking as well. Look for the signs.
There is your typical food/drink set up around the market.






***Bring Small Euro bills and change
***A Sak to carry your finds
*** an unbrella! ( it's Germany.. you never know when it's gonna rain!)
*** Snack/bottle water
*** notepad/pen to discuss pricing with vendor's who don't speak english ...This saves alot of guessing and misunderstandings if you don't have your dollar amounts memorized =) Also if you buy large furniture, you can sometimes work it out to have it delivered for a fee... this is also great to write your address down in a pinch!


Shop around though... this market is big with "Americans" and the locals/dealers know it.. Dont' be afraid to haggle! =)




Vendors tend to pack up at noon.. so be there early!

Still want to shop for MORE bargains? Head to the Neunkirchen Second hand store
15 min away...

Wellesweilerstrasse 90
66538 Neunkirchen, Germany
06821 9649760

Have Fun!

Send a comment of your favorite find! I would love to know what you found!

About The Market Junkie

Welcome. My Name is Angela... AKA The Market Junkie.

I am a stay at home home school mama of 3, and this is my hobby. Family comes first, then my love of markets and second hand fun! I love visiting the markets in Europe. I love to refinish old pieces and re-purpose them. Living in the Rheinland Pfalz area- my posts reflect the distance to markets and shops from the Kaiserslautern area.

I enjoy the adventure, and hope that you will come along with me! 10 years in Germany, and lovin' it!
