The closure of the northern bank of the Main has not only been received positively after the first few months, as the already tense traffic situation in the city centre has now worsened considerably in some places. In order to relax the situation on the weekend a little, it was now decided that the flea market will change from dribbdebach to hibbdebach from Saturday, 25 January. There it will then take place in a 14-day cycle until the end of the traffic test.
The northern and southern former lanes in the currently closed area will be used for the construction of the flea market stands, while the middle lane will remain as an escape and rescue route. At the same time, visitors can walk along the stands and browse for all kinds of treasures. The event time remains unchanged on Saturdays from 9 to 14 o'clock. The market preparations start at 6 a.m., the market suppliers set up their stands from about 7 a.m. and can use the access road at the Old Bridge. The pitches will be cleared by 4 p.m. and the area cleaning will be completed by 6 p.m. The necessary parking area for the flea market vendors is located in the western section of the restricted area towards the Untermainbrücke. Snack bars for the supply of the market guests will be located on the former parking lots at the level of the Iron Bridge.
Standing place bookings are now possible at the flea market office of HFM Managementgesellschaft für Hafen und Markt by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 069/212-48562. Around 850 metres of stand space are available for the flea market, which is less than half of the space previously used by the flea market on the southern bank of the Main. Among other things, to make optimum use of the available space, it is necessary that permanent or fixed places cannot be reserved. The allocation of the stands takes place on the day of the event on site.
With up to four hundred market participants per event date in the summer months and around 10,000 stand bookings per year, the Frankfurt flea market is one of the largest in the Rhine-Main area. As before, the Frankfurt flea market is also held at the Lindleystraße location in weekly rotation.
