Starokinnyy Flea Market

Loaded with a plastic bottle of fruity red wine and our Fuji X-T20 camera we strolled a Sunday afternoon through the legendary Starokinnyy Flea Market in Odesa, Ukraine – capturing its unique atmosphere with families and their playful kids, young couples, bachelors, old babushkas, sleepy kozaks, enterprising guys, fashionable girls, soldiers on leave, students and tourist looking for a good find at the many vendors selling second-hand cloth, kitchen items, books, children toys, guns, hand grenades, workshop tools, electronics, car spare parts, workshop tools, statues, jewelry, paintings, toys, pets, vodka, honey, herbs, potent enhancing medicine, and what else there is to be found in Ukraine homes, attics, storage rooms, garages and so on. The flea market is situated outside the streets of the Moldavanka district. A good starting point is Rozkydailivs’ka Street, Odessa. Open 8 AM to 6 PM on weekends.
