Avissynia Square, Monastiraki /Heart of the Flea Market
Today, it is home, every Sunday, to the bric a brac section of the Athens flea market. On Sunday its home item mostly, meaning for people who live here but I bought a small brass lamp once and took it back to the US with me. I had to get it wired but have never seen another like it either.
The rest of the week Abyssinia Sq. offers some similar activity too but with fewer crowds and is therefore preferable, if you are actually in the market for something. Just as always, shop here at your own risk and be skepticle as to vendors claims.
There are many shops and stalls to be seen as you stroll down to the entrance to Avissynias Sq. which will be on your right hand side. One may egress it from parallel Ermou Street as well. Sundays are busiest and beware pick-pockets. Things start early and wind down around 14:00 These photos will, if you click them give you a real good idea whether Abyssinia Sq is for you.
