Rommelmarkt Dageraadplaats 2020
Antwerp Flea Market Locations and Photos
Rommelmarkt refers to a flea market. The event happens in Dageraadplaats 3 to 4 times a year in the Zurenborg district located in South-East Antwerp. Believe me, some of the items are indeed value-for-money if you are eagle-eyed to spot the hidden treasure among the pile of second-hand items.
As the Rommelmarkt Dageraadplaats does not happen every weekend as the typical flea markets do, therefore, expect to see many people who go there early to scout the best items there. Even in the afternoon, the flea market continues to have a large crowd of people.
There are approximately 110 exhibitors who set up their stalls as early as 6:30 am. You can look and walk around for a few hundred metres in the Dageraadplaats square. Like such a jumbo sales market in Belgium, you can find all sorts of stuff on sales. For instance antiques, clothing, shoes, household furniture and appliances, books, posters, etc.
Children and Playground
The parents can keep the children busy by letting them have fun on the playground. There are also several benches around the playground too.
Restaurants and Cafés
There are a few restaurants and cafés surrounding the Rommelmarkt Dageraadplats where you can grab a drink or have some food. However, many are not opened on Sunday too.
The Rommelmarkt Dageraadplaats situated in front of Sint-Norbertuskerk Church gives the flea market a captivating background. The Sint-Norbertuskerk opens its door for visiting during the summer from 9 am to 5 pm every day. Therefore, you can visit the church at the same time. On 10 September 2017 when I went to the flea market, the church was still open.

- By Tram: Take Tram No. 11 which starts from ‘Berchem Station’ or ‘Melkmarkt’. Get off at ‘Dageraadplaats‘.

However, Swan Market is not a second-hand market but a platform for entrepreneurs who would like to showcase their talents in handmade items.
