Vera’s Market

Vera’s Market takes place every Sunday

Fashionistas should definitely keep an eye on Veras’ website for the market’s upcoming dates. It’s a great way to buy some inexpensive, Scandinavian-style pieces or just spend a relaxed morning rummaging in tonnes of second-hand clothes and accessories. Veras Market takes place every Sunday – at Bispeengbuen during spring and summertime and indoors at Nørrebrohallen in the winter. With such a great number of stalls packed with clothes of all styles, it comes as no surprise that visitors leave the place with bags filled with goodies. Make sure to head in early because the place gets super packed.

Thorvaldsens Plads Antique Market

Thorvaldsens Plads Antique Market

One of Copenhagen’s oldest and biggest flea markets, Thorvaldsens Plads Antique Market can be found in the city’s historic centre near the Thorvaldsens Museum and its picturesque canals. There, stalls filled with knick-knacks, Danish porcelains, jewellery, silvers and many more antiques of all kinds sold by some of the finest antique dealers in Denmark entice would-be shoppers.

Mega Kup

Mega Kup sells luxury clothes for women of all ages

An indoor second-hand clothing market, Mega Kup sells luxury clothes for women of all ages. Open year round, it is the first market that takes place every month, and Aarhus’ residents never miss the chance to make a stop and rummage through the packed booths. It is very important to Mega Kup’s founders to provide quality clothes and accessories to their guests, so it’s likely that shoppers will leave the place with more than one elegant piece.

Bazar Vest

Bazar Vest offers vegetables, freshly baked bread and quality meats

For flavourful vegetables, fresh-baked bread, and quality meat products, head straight for Bazar Vest. The huge shopping centre welcomes approximately 1,000 customers every week. As well as a great variety of products and delicacies from all over the world, visitors can also find clothing stores, souvenirs shops, cosy restaurants, and cafés to indulge in Scandinavian delicacies after shopping.


Bagagerumsmarkeder is the largest market in Scandinavia

With approximately 400 stall holders, shoppers may have to dig deep to find something that suits their tastes, but it’s quite unlikely that visitors will leave Bagagerumsmarkeder empty-handed. The largest market in Scandinavia, it welcomes approximately 35,000 guests every second Sunday of the month. Everything from antiques, bric a brac, books, furniture, and utensils are sold in low prices to bargain hunters from all over the country. Filled with booths, cars, and food stalls, tourists can also mingle with locals who are always eager to strike up a conversation.

Lopper på Havnen

Like most of the markets in Denmark, Lopper på Havnen takes place from spring to autumn. Once a month, approximately 100 stalls are set up near Aalborg’s Harbor’s waterfront. The market welcomes locals and tourists from 10am to 3pm. There, visitors can find a wide range of vintage items, clothes, souvenirs, ceramics, and many more inexpensive goods. Moreover, food stands sell local delicacies, so weather permitting, grab a rød pølse hot dog and take a break from sightseeing.

Odense Kunst and Loppemarked

Every Sunday from the end of March until the end of October, Odense’s harbour gets packed with vendors selling secondhand items and artefacts. For the six hours it remains open, hundreds of locals pass by the Odense Kunst and Loppemarked to rummage through the numerous booths. Those not in the mood for shopping should still make sure to stop by the city’s cosy market after visiting the Hans Christian Andersen Museum to get some souvenirs for loved ones back home.

Skagen Food & Design Market

Crevalcore, Italy

Every year, chefs, entrepreneurs, and food lovers travel to Skagen for the two-day Food & Design Market.

Aside from tasting fresh ingredients and delicious dishes, visitors have also the chance to hear intriguing product-design presentations by specialists.
