Flea Market


Sunday morning walk in a flea market in my town Subotica,Serbia.

Flea Market Subotica was an important spot on the map of Vojvodina, Serbia, formerly Yugoslavia in Central and Eastern Europe with its many peculiarities for at least two decades. Those who visit it regularly call it simply, the Flea Market. By the end of the 1980s and 1990s, it grew into a mecca for buyers and traders coming not only from the country, but also from Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania.

Nowadays, this market is more like a shopping mall with approximately 1,600 registered shops and stalls, and over 200 premises. Alongside Subotica’s residents and and those from nearly all regions of Serbia, buyers, and traders from Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Bosnian Serb Republic, still visit this market.

For thousand of households, the Flea Market has, for already ten years, been the primary source of subsistence; for Subotica it was the trademark of free trade, as it came to be a regular stopover for domestic travelers, on their way to Europe.

And finally during my Sunday walk, I found very interesting shops. Enjoy the photos as much as I did shooting it.
