This is definetly one of my favourite places in Cracow and I think none should skip that. This is where you can find unique souvenir from your travels and every time I sent someone there I get the feedback that it was awesome and that this person buy something really nice. It's open only on Sunday, because in every other day there is a Farmer Market which I also recommend to shop for fresh fruits, vegetables etc. The flea market is quite huge and have diffrent kind of things - from very expensive antiques to just a random objects that some guys found on the streets. I buy there for example this old school radio:
Or this wicker basket and blue bottles
But you can also buy jewellery, postcards, old photos, toys, clothes and more and more. I hunt for treasures all the time, so I created an album on fanpage where I post all the things that I was lucky to find at Hala Targowa.
It is open from very early in the morning (one seller told me they are there from 4 am, but I've never ever been there so ealry) and they start to pack up around 2-3 pm. Try to bargain, but not too much. They say that from Cracow are misers and they count every cent. Last time I was there, I asked the guy for the price, he said "60" and it seemed too much for me, so I asked "can I bargain?" and his sad "Yes, of course. It is 70 now". So...They will for sure tell you the higher price, if they know you're not polish, so what you can do is to stand there and let them see that you wonder whether to buy and it's possible that they will just tell you the lower price. Good luck with hunting and let me show what you got (you can send me the picture or use #planetpoland hashtag).
I recently shoot this video to show you a little bit more of Hala Targowa:
