Geneva’s main flea and famers’ market trades on Wednesdays and Saturdays, as well as the first Sunday of the month.

If you’re out hunting for a bargain there are scores of stalls selling antiques, furniture, handicrafts, books, jewellery, homeware and clothing.

As with any market your chances of making a discovery hinge on luck and patience, as well as when you visit: On Saturdays for example the traders tend to be more upscale.
