Flea market will once again welcome bargain hunters

You’ll soon be able to browse through second-hand items on the Schulhausplatz Marktgasse in Baar again. This flea market has come to the end of a long dry spell.

Rare collectibles, curiosities from the cellar or exclusive items from the attic: there’s something for everyone at the Baar flea market. The event, which takes place four times a year, is very popular in the community, with normally around 90 stands attracting customers to the Schulhausplatz Marktgasse. But it was last held almost half an eternity ago: According to a statement from the municipality, the last time people could browse through the offers was in October 2019. All the flea markets planned for last year, as well as the one scheduled for 1st May 2021 had to be cancelled due to the corona pandemic.

This enforced break will now be ended: the flea market will awaken to new life on Saturday, 12 June. From 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., more than 60 stalls on the Schulhausplatz Marktgasse will invite you to stroll and browse. In order to maintain the minimum distances and to guarantee the protective measures, the number of stalls at the flea market has been reduced, while the available space had been increased.

In addition, a disinfectant dispenser will be available, and efforts will be made to avoid crowds of people, with the entire market area being subject to a mask-wearing obligation for everyone. According to the communication, security personnel will check compliance with the protective measures, and will intervene if necessary.

The physical well-being of the customers and visitors will also be taken care of. Take-away sausages, Thai specialties and drinks will be sold by the Rathus-Schüür. No tables or seats will be available, however, due to corona protection measures.
