June 2010 update-most sources say that this market is closed due to the new stadium being built, one local said part of it still remained but we didn't check it out
Held daily in the former National Stadium, this is also known as the Russian market although there are many more nationalities selling goods there. Get there early, by noon a lot of the vendors were already packed up.
What to buy: We went specifically for the old Soviet stuff and found quite a few vendors selling it on the top ring of the stadium. There was also some new Russian goods such as nested dolls and lacquer boxes.
Much of the rest of the goods were new items.
My husband found it quite amusing that we bought a German Bob the Builder tshirt from a Russian at a Polish flea market :-)
There is a small Russian bookstore in the Russian market.
You can get there by taking trams or buses passing through Rondo Waszyngtona.
The Markjet is open until 13:00.
What to buy: You can find books and Russian albums, magazines.
Immediately south of Sadyba Best Mall is something you don't typically see right next to a big modern shopping mall: A thriving outdoor market. I don't know what the name of this market is, but it is full of little shacks selling nearly anything you can imagine, including toys, underwear, deli meat, vegetables, fruit, shoes, and...well...like I said, just about anything.
The outdoor flea market located at Kolo is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 7am till around 2pm. There is wide selection of both antiques and other artifacts of the past (some fakes) available. You can also find things that are not the oldest ones but sometimes pretty weird and remind of the past that was the present not that long time ago.
What to buy: Anything that looks old but also usually used stuff
What to pay: Bargain for everything and make sure that you are paying for real treasure and not fakes
This bazaar is known as "Bazar na Kole". It is open on Saturdays and Sundays from early morning till 2 PM.
It's very special as actually the only things sold there are antiques: stamps, watches, clocks, furniture, pottery, glass, silver, paintings, sculpture, army artifacts and thousands of such things found in basements etc.
The bazaar is definetely worth seing. I know that foreign tourists like it. Remember, you may have problems with taking some of those things abroad - they are antiques.
Beware of pickpockets!
The bigest bazaar in Europe. It's one of the cheapest place in Warsaw, where you can buy mainly clothes, but also shoes and cosmetics.
This picture was taken while bazaar was closed already, it's opened from very early hours till about 1.00 pm.
Huge sports stadium is the site of one of a large weekend bazaars. Vendors
come from all Eastern European countries.
