Stalls selling jewellery, vintage clothes, retro furniture, food and coffee are part of a once a month Dublin market promoting a greener lifestyle.

The Dublin Flea Market in Newmarket Square is a non-profit organisation with the objective of encouraging recycling and sustainability in the community.

Jewels, second-hand clothes and once precious treasures. On the last Sunday of every month, all of these are for sale at the Dublin Flea Market.

There are seventy stands, twenty of which are taken up by regulars each month, with the Flea Market witnessing the birth of several successful companies. 

It all began at the Flea Market for Paul Byrne who runs an online furniture business called 'Retrorumage'. Paul has built up his profile with his monthly stall at the market and believes that it is important to have a physical presence for his products as well as online.

Organisers say that while stall holders make money and the market a green sustainable business as everything sold there is second hand. Co-founder of the Dublin Flea Market, Sharon Greene says that is was set up for the community with the aim of encouraging recycling and sustainability.

A stall costs €40 for the day.
