Flea markets making a comeback in S’pore

SINGAPORE: Singapore is seeing a revival of the humble flea market.

Organisers said the number of people keen to set up a flea market stall has jumped from 600 two years ago, to 15,000 today.

The number of flea market locations has also risen from two to at least 10.

It costs about S$50 to rent a stall for a day.

The relatively low rent has resulted in young people jumping on the bandwagon and renting stalls to flex their entrepreneurial skills.

Organisers said there are plans to offer permanent stalls or push carts at lower cost for budding entrepreneurs.
