    Ultimate Surprise
    I would be surprised if you did not find this place amazing. It is huge, allow heaps of time and immerse yourself in the place. The noise of people sorting through stones was infectious. Many of the stalls were dealers selling to dealers with some ready made jewellery. Like any market the world over, check your purchases and enjoy. If you are worried about fakes stroll around and look. You see many items twice it’s a fake. Loved it got some beautiful jewellery at really good prices. Sadly not enough space to have bought more. Going back today for a few more bargains.

    Basically a ceramics / jewellery market
    The market was mostly ceramics and jewellery. There was a section that appeared more flea style, and another that was a market of more push carts. We understood some may be 2nd hand items (I guess from the flea style section), and I also understand from a local that most of the ceramics would be heavily overpriced. We thought the place felt a little dusty / dirty looking - Personally did not enjoy the space.

    Beads Galore
    Rows upon rows upon rows of shopping! I would say over half of it is selling beads and jewelry and the other half is home goods. There were some cool sellers that would carve a name stamp for you right there. There’s also an indoor part that has more expensive shops, such as for furniture, tea, or high end jewelry. My family didn’t buy much but got a few trinkets. Remember to haggle! Overall a good experience but I don’t plan to go back soon.

If you're up for a lively adventure and don't mind a little haggling, the Friday Antique Market is your go-to spot. I popped in there last Friday, and wow, what an experience! This place is a buzzing hub with a mix of established shops and pop-up vendors, all crammed into this vibrant market scene.

Let me tell you about the haggling—it's a must! The vendors start with sky-high prices. Case in point: I spotted these cute tea cups marked at 100 yuan. But after a bit of back-and-forth, guess what? I snagged them for 20 yuan! So, when you visit, throw on your bargaining hat and get ready to talk them down because, more often than not, the guy next door might just have the same thing for less.

And oh, the variety! It’s like a treasure trove. From natural stones to Buddha statues and loads of jewelry, not to mention what seems like a billion pears—yes, actual pears—it’s all there. The place is also a hotspot for local arts and crafts, which adds to that authentic market vibe.

A word to the wise: take those vendor stories with a grain of salt and don't hesitate to play the field. Compare prices, ask around, and stand your ground. It’s hilarious—I had one vendor laugh outright at my offer, but as I began to walk away, she caved and made the sale. Classic!

Though the market itself isn’t brimming with food stalls, the streets around are lined with tasty bites, perfect for refueling after some intense bargaining. I left the market at around 7 PM, and the energy was still electric, with the crowd showing no signs of thinning out.

In a nutshell, the Friday Antique Market is a fantastic spot if you’re looking to dive into the local culture, scoop up some cool finds, and enjoy a bustling atmosphere. Just be sure to bring your A-game for haggling and have a blast exploring!

We visited on a Sunday morning and spent about 45 minutes having a look around at this interesting market with lots of little stalls. Some of them seemed permanent, but I think that others are only there at the weekend.

You can find unique souvenirs here. Sure a lot of it isn't authentically antique but there's still a lot else to see. It's a nice market to see. I wouldn't prioritise it if you don't care for shopping.

I do not understand why they are so many positive reviews on this, please. It has absolutely nothing to do with Antique for most of the the the the shops. Firstly, all staff you can find there, you can find anywhere else in BJ. Secondly, most of it is fake.
If you want to buy souvenir that will stay in the bottom drawer or get a useless gift for your friends, that's the place for you. If you look for really unique and interesting staff do not waste your time going to this market.

Wide variety of craft items available from wooden accessories to porcelain pots and vases. All at great prices, not to mention the lovely paint calligraphy available too! Definitely worth a visit with lots to choose from!
