Adjustments due to the Corona pandemic

A maximum of 500 people may be present at the flea market at the same time (1 person per 4 m2).

In addition, the number of sales stands is limited to 65 (in addition to the annual permit holders). Visitors and market participants are requested to comply with the requirements of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH).

The children's flea market

The children's flea market will start on Saturday, 8 August 2020. Reservations are not possible. The children must register on site at Bernoullistrasse and then be able to sell on their own. Please note the regulations (Regelungen Kinderflohmi).


  • A flea market stall (2 metres) costs CHF 20. Every additional metre costs CHF 10.
  • Participation in the children's flea market costs CHF 5.-.

Stall reservations

Flea market places can be booked online and paid for with Post Card, TWINT, VISA or MasterCard. Reservations are possible from Tuesday, 9 am for the following two Saturdays. The registration deadline is Thursday, 6 pm for the following Saturday. Your reservation is only confirmed after payment has been made.

To the online reservation

Due to the current situation, only 65 places can be allocated per flea market day. We ask for your understanding that the places are booked up very quickly.

Information about the counter:
The counter of the customer centre of the Department of Justice and Security (Spiegelgasse 6, 4001 Basel) has been closed. At the moment, it is not possible to book the remaining space with the Platzmeister, so we ask you to register via the online booking system.
