Market days

Stalls at the Parow flea market.

Parow flea market must be one of the northern suburbs’ best kept secrets and yet it has been running for about 35 years. With a maze of stalls there are hidden treasures and excellent deals, from hardware, books, hats and shoes to a toilet or parking cones. Manager Jannie Theart says the 120-plus stalls are fully booked on Saturdays but there is space on Wednesdays , Fridays and Saturdays, from 7am to 2pm.
