A flea market is a place where vendors come to sell or trade their goods and the most famous one in Israel is locate in old Tel Aviv-Jaffa . The goods are usually inexpensive and range in quality depending on several factors, which might include urban or rural location, part of the country, or popularity or size of the flea market. Shopping at a flea market is a popular pastime for many people around the world. The vast majority of flea markets in rural areas sell goods that are second-hand. Larger selections of newer but usually inexpensive items can be found at some of the larger or more urban flea markets. They have also sometimes been used as an outlet for bootleg, movies and music or counterfeit goods ranging from clothing, shoes, handbags, fragrances,etc. The semi-spontaneous nature and vendor-oriented open-market layouts of flea markets usually differentiate them from thrift stores. Some flea markets offer concerts and carnival-type events to attract shoppers. All photos by Rafael Ben-Ari/Chameleons Eye
