Updated: 27 June 2017
The Czech Republic has a long tradition of markets – whether that means places to find local food, wares or art. If you’re after a unique souvenir, want to find a gift for a loved one, or just want to indulge yourself, there’s no better place to spend the day browsing. Here’s a breakdown of some of the country’s most famous fairs and markets, and why you should visit them.

Mint Market, Prague

Mint Market in Prague is a unique, alternative market built into what used to be an abandoned warehouse. Now, local producers, artisans and designers come every Saturday to sell their wares here from small stalls. Pick up everything from homemade cosmetics, upcycled bags and home décor items, through to specialty food and snacks, books and unique stationery.

Náplavka farmer’s market, Prague

Pottery fair, Kunštát

Located about three hours south of Prague, near Brno (the Czech Republic’s second largest city), this is the largest market of its kind in the country. Held only once a year in September, the fair attracts all kind of artists, art workshops and studios that come here to present and sell their wares. There’s also a cultural program around the fair that includes workshops, tryout pottery classes, and live entertainment.

U Elektry flea market, Prague

Although it technically doesn’t have a name (U Elektry is the name of the street that runs closest to it), everybody who loves antique hunting knows and loves this place. The largest flea market in Europe, this is one of those places where you can rummage for hours and find a number of treasures you didn’t even know you wanted. Come early (the market only runs 6am to 1pm, on Saturdays and Sundays) and be patient – items are set up on tables, on tarps on the floor, inside baskets. And a single seller often has a little bit of everything: from old watches to porcelain from the Czechoslovakia era to old radios and tin toys.

Sběratelské trhy collectors’ market, Buštěhrad

Open only the second and fourth Friday of every month, this market runs outdoors between April and October, and moves indoor during the colder months. A 40-minute drive north west from Prague, this is not only the largest but also the oldest collectors’ market in the country. Originally focused on pins and coins, it now features all sorts of antiques, including old porcelain, watches and jewelry, small collectibles, furniture, and much more.
