Mega Flea Market

The market

The monthly City Flea market is hosted every first Saturday of the month at Garlic and flowers was created to support and encourage entrepreneurship in Namibia by connecting local up and coming entrepreneurs to the community in a cost effective way and to create awareness of an active sub-cultural community. Namibia offers an unavoidable wealth of opportunities and individual abilities. The City Flea market has thus far managed to group individuals who have similar aspirations together and given them a platform to showcase their goods/services in a concentrated area. We have come to realize that it could be easy to set up a stall in the middle of town square but the profit margins are never 100% profitable due to lack of marketing and understanding of one’s products/services, hence we feel providing a platform in a concentrated area gives more exposure and understanding.  

*The Concept at length:*
 The concept of the Flea market encompasses underlying philosophies that inspired similar markets held in Southern Africa and Western Europe. Over the years people have sought alternative markets where they can access bespoke pieces of art/ clothes/ vintage items that are individual and uniquely creative. Fashion and art markets have also started attracting individuals from various sectors of the economy including organic food, speciality foods, designers and Artists etc. In Namibia the City market has thus far managed to group individuals who have similar aspirations and who require a cost effective opportunity to present their products to the market. From toy sellers, to painters, eyebrow bonding specialists to fragrance sellers, even second hand goods..The market has been successful in yielding entrepreneurs who have added colour and vibrancy to the concept.
