Traders by chance - il Mercatino delle Carabattole (flea market) is the oldest garage sale of Lucca and now the largest in Tuscany.
Since the first edition, on June 21, 2009 at Foro Boario, in Loc. Montescendi - Monte San Quirico, it wasa very successful event and today it is the largest covered garage sale in Tuscany, with stands made with great fun and enthusiasm by people who suddenly improvise themselves"merchants by chance". Here you can find used objects of all kinds.
The Foro Boario, located on the banks of the River Serchio near the San Quirico Bridge, was the nineteenth-century market of livestock, just outside the walled city, in the historic Borgo Giannotti.
Two visible turrets mark the entrance. There are three large canopies in the area, with concrete pavement, grooves and slopes typical of cattle markets. Behind the canopies there is a beautiful fully enclosed building, which is used by several associations for the realization of the most diverse cultural initiatives.
