My Hunting Field 2: Kebayoran Lama

Kebayoran Lama is another flea market I occassionally visit. Just five minutes by ojek from Taman Puring, the place however is not as popular. Not as “cool” and airy either. In fact it is the hottest flea market in south jakarta, literally speaking. Well, to begin with, Kebayoran Lama flea market is not exactly legal from the authority point of view. Therefore there are times when you don’t see many sellers around or they…

are all there but there is only few stuff being displayed because they know at anytime the police can raid and take all the stuff. Anyway, like Taman Puring, there are two areas of the market: outside and inside. The outside market is located right under the flyover from Jln Pakubuwono to Kebayoran Lama. While the inside market is located in the semi permanent shops alongside the railway.

Kebayoran Lama flea market is known more for secondhand goods, including electronic parts such as chargers, and other bits and pieces as well as gems and precious stones. Vintage items are among all these, so you really have to dig to find real vintage. While the area under flyover is more open, chaotic– and bloody hot, the inside market along by the railways is a bit slummy, dark and not for the faint hearted. So if you are into adventures and different experience, this is the place. Did I mention that if you are lucky you can find a rare vintage or antique at unbelievable price? Believe me.
