Flea Markets

Open Tuesday, and Thursday to Sunday, The Open Market is a popular market located on the edge of The Centre: MK outside door 10. It’s one of the best places to go to find farm-fresh fruit and vegetables as well as electronics, gadgets, arts and crafts, sweets and discount clothing.

Who knows what you’ll find at the MK Bowl Market and Car Boot sale. Stretching over a vast field, you’ll see row upon row of cars with people selling their unwanted items. From furniture to dusty vinyl and kitchenware to clothing, you could find literally anything on your visit. Running every Sunday, it’s open from 5am for traders and buyers, and the adage about the early bird getting the worm rings true. Thankfully, there are lots of catering vans on-site to get your breakfast and coffee fix while you haggle to find your treasure in another person’s trash.
