Local Markets - Opel Exit Floh Markt

Driving around the K-town area you may have seen this sign around every few weekends.... Well this past weekend, I decided to stop by and check out the OPEL exit flea market.

Follow the signs... and it takes you about 5 minutes to teh back side of the Opel car company parking lot... to my surpise it was quite large!
Several isles of locals selling their wares. There were very FEW vendors... this is just one isle! even moving at a rather quick rate, it still took a good hour to walk through ( I was there at the end of the day).. bring euros and extra saks! They had more everday items than antique's... but there were still some vintage wares mixed in.. lots of clothing items, linens, toys, and household items.

Most everyone spoke english. but the prices seemed to be a bit high at alot of the tables. (nothing is ever marked) But with a little bargaining... you should be able to come home with some great treasures~! It's definatly worth a visit.

My shopping buddy scored pretty good today! a new dolly stroller, a little crown ( free) a bag of play food, and a stuffed animal. =)

Located at:
67663 Kaiserslautern, Innenstadt
Location: Opel Parkplatz Portal 1
from 8:00 - 4:00
Next one Saturday April 24th!!!
