Yaay! The Anjuna Market has always been a favourite and I think a lot of Goa lovers like me will agree to it being the best flea market out of all in Goa. Well Yes Goa can spoil you for choice but teaches you haggling as well. Not bad actually when you get to learn some extra hacks and tricks of shopping.

Truly said the Gariahat Market is I guess one of the best flea market in India because it has never so happened that I have decided to buy something and I have been back home disappointed. You can be rest assured about the availability of everything you want out here.

I think the Chandni chowk of Delhi should also find a place in the list of best flea market in India. I feel you get a magical charm over here and that old school ambience is just too sweet. The silver and junk jewellery from here is unmatchable for me.

You are so right when you said that the online stores and huge shopping malls have taken over the flea market in India culture but I can proudly say that I still make sure I shop regularly from the flea markets because what you get there is always closer to the heart.
