Where "thieves brought their stolen goods to sell" or so goes the story, the rag-and-bone man now brings his collection to sell to make a few extra dollars.
Lined along the roads, you'll find plenty of old clothes, shoes, toys, CDs, books, etc. If you enjoy tinkling with old gadgets that may or may not work at the end of the day, this is the place to come. Old electronics and home appliance parts are a common sight.
Though the condition of items are generally questionable, you can find the occasional antique or treasure that requires some restoration to its former glory at a good price. And if you find yourself needing a drink after wandering around for a while, you'll be able to find refreshing cold can or bottle drinks from enterprising peddlers!

Tell Us what you think
Do buy with your eyes open and bargain if you need to. Even if you decide not to buy, wandering through the lanes will transport you back in time.

Things to Bring
Bring an umbrella or wear a cap - it can get quite hot.

Opening Times
Opening times: Around 11 am to 6 pm.

Best time to go: Around lunchtime when all the stalls are set.
