Neighbourhood flea markets in Basel
A number of flea markets set up by individuals for individuals take place throughout the year in different districts of Basel. Local events are organised that bring people together to enjoy simple pleasures and make unexpected discoveries during these visits to quiet backyards and hidden gardens. The venues are marked with balloons and allow for a colourful treasure hunt.

The Stephanus district market is held every Friday on the square in front of the Stephanus Community Centre at Furkastrasse 12. It offers fine products from the region – from bread to cauliflower, from cheese to potatoes. Here you will also find a stand of WERT!Stätte. This organisation has made it its mission to rescue still usable food from being thrown away and to create something new from it in order to counter wastage. A "Story Tent" also awaits in dry weather. This is a place where children can play and an exciting story is told at 10.30 a.m. Visit us, have a cup of coffee and enjoy the cosy atmosphere of our neighbourhood market. We look forward to seeing you!
Fridays, from 8.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m.
