Flea Market

A treasure of trinkets

Green Haat, a small-scale but vibrant flea market, was recently held at Green Theory on Convent Road. 

The market comprised of items made by around ten designers and artists, including crochet work, jewellery, soaps and illustrations. 

The most unique part of the market was probably the tarot card reading stall, which plenty of enthusiastic visitors flocked to. 

Bikas Parik and Nimisha Parik, the owners of Green Theory, came up with this idea around six months ago along with Inchara Jaganath, who now manages the event. 

“We had similar views about having something novel — like a flea market — at a central location and thought, why not organise it?” says Bikas. 

Their main motive was to make flea markets a regular affair and promote budding artists and designers by providing a platform for them.

Inchara explains that this market is held twice a month with about eight to ten participants. Since the cost of setting up a stall is reasonable, the participants can make a good profit for themselves. 

She adds, “We have bands performing in the evening. This way, visitors can shop, eat and enjoy good music in a relaxing ambience.” 

Sangita V, who put up a stall at the market, says, “This is a good place to showcase our products, especially because of its central location.” 

“I came in for some lunch but was delightfully surprised when I saw the flea market,” adds Yogini Raj, an entrepreneur who used the opportunity to pick up some posters for her children. 

Aamina Shah, a homemaker, says that she always attends flea markets as they have the most unique nicknacks. “I love that the items at flea markets are one of a kind. Though the venue is small, it has a very homely feeling which is inviting,” she adds.
