Photo blog – Anjuna beach flea market on Wednesday

A flea market is held near the southern part of Anjuna beach (click to find on map) every Wednesday. It starts from 9 am and ends at 6 pm and runs mainly during the tourist season. Here, a wide variety of products like pashmina shawls, handbags, religious idols, t-shirt, gowns, spices, flavoured tea, jewellery, hand-made toys, souvenirs etc are sold by local vendors. Small eateries are also set up if you want to eat something. The entire area wears a festive look due to the presence of different types of colourful stalls. It is visited by a huge number of tourists, mostly foreigners. However, if you want to buy any products, check properly and bargain with the seller.

                     The Anjuna beach flea market was mainly started in the early 1960’s or 70’s by western hippies who used to sell their possessions when they ran out of money. Nevertheless, it has come a long way since then and it is mostly run by local people now. Some of the pictures that I have taken are given below –
