The Flea Market was initiated when several local merchants got together with the founders and proposed an idea to create a new, fair marketplace to accommodate the growing number of small merchants in Seminyak and areas around it. 

After profound thoughts of the market concept and careful selection of the location, it was decided to develop the market on a vacant land belong to local village. The founders made a deal with the then-chief of the traditional village of Seminyak and on 15 April 2011, The Flea Market Seminyak was opened in Kayu Aya Square in Jalan Kayu Aya, Seminyak. 

It was not an easy story to make the market successful, as at that time the chosen area was not yet a popular tourist-destination.  Yes, it was in the close vicinity of Seminyak Square and Kudeta,  but surrounding Kayu Aya Square area was still ricefields and some local buildings.  The first year was a real hard struggle.  Many vendors gave up and left the market.  The number of vendors turnover reached 40%.  ~ But on the 2nd year, the situation changed and became better.   The struggle indeed did not betray the result.   The Flea Market was slowly recognized and more and more visitors came.  

The Flea Market are still open till present time, counting to the 11th year of celebration on the coming April 15th, 2022.   Sixty percent of the existing vendors are the pioneer vendors from year 2011, and the market has become the second home for the vendors.  Many of them have established successful business outside The Flea Market, and managed to possess assets from their business in The Flea Market.

Why is it called
The Flea Market ?

The actual meaning of FLEA MARKET is an outdoor market selling many things, including second hand goods. 

Taking the concept of the outdoor market, as The Flea Market is using tents, the founders decided to use THE FLEA MARKET for the market, even though in this The Flea Market, the vendors are not selling second hand goods.   It is assumed the name to be easy-to-remember, especially amongst those residing in western countries.
