If it's old, it's here

What we say: 3.5 stars

If you have the patience to wade through the junk there's definitely some gems at this outdoor flea market.

You don't need a license to sell and many vendors don't bother with folding tables and dump their wares — dial telephones, used sports equipment, yellowed paperbacks, broken computer monitors, secondhand shoes — right on the ground.

Despite most of it being junk, sellers have an inflated idea what it's worth so be prepared to bargain.

The market was once known for its illegally-obtained merchandise, but the only questionable goods that remain are pirated DVDs.
