THE new flea market set up at Shirley Park in Lautoka for the past three Saturday's is gradually gaining popularity.
And organisers say not only is the rental fee of $10 cheap, but also a wide range of items can also be bought and sold.
Saturday shoppers converged on the market on Saturday to check a wide range of items including clothes, shoes, pot plants, books, household appliances, tools, toys, musical instruments and even second- hand motors and engines.
Event co-ordinator John Arstall said the idea behind the flea market came about when he noticed that a good number of people from Lautoka were travelling to Nadi to shop at the Martintar-based flea market on Saturdays.
"So I discussed this with the Lautoka City Council and now it has really taken off, some are even asking to come and sell their goats."
The only exception is the sale of cooked food because it might affect the sales of restaurants at the park.
