GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – The annual neighborhood flea markets continue in Geneva this weekend 10-11 May, in St.-Jean and 10 May in Carouge.
St. Jean is one of the largest flea markets affiliated to the Ville est a vous with over 500 non-professional sellers.
Here, street food stalls line up by the dozen and the Maison de quartier sets up a huge playground for kids to play in.
There is also a groove-lounge with electronic music set up and a main stage for performers. Concerts begin at noon and end at midnight on Saturday and at 19:00 on Sunday. (See the program here).
If you want to sell, these are the rules: show up a bit before 8:00 with second-hand and a few new items (can’t sell exclusively new items), set up your stall and voilà!
Those interested in setting a free food stall must contact each of the organizers and attend a 2-hour health course.
