Prague flea markets

Are there any worth seeing flea markets in Prague? We will be there for almost a week in July.

Thanks

There are no regular flea markets that I am aware if.The list of markets that Christina gives is fairly comprehensive,but be awre that the markets are not on every day.
The Riverside market includes Holesovice Fruit market as mentioned in Christinas list is quite good.

The fruit and veg market is huge and quite interesting ,there are loads of other stalls selling mainly clothes and household goods and a few doing tourist tat.but worth a trip if you have time but I would not make it a highlight.On Saturdays there is a farmers market in the main market area and on a sunday it is very quiet and best avoided.
I am back in Prague at the end of may/early June,i will ask a few of my friends about flea markets and see what they say and get back to you.

Wow thanks guys. I saw in Christina's list Havel's Market right near Old Town it looked like it was a nice flea market with a good mix of things. Have either you been?

yeah I usually go to Havel's market when ever I am in Prague,it is great for fresh fruit and veg,also lots of places selling art work,leather stuff and wooden puppets and toys, confectionary buscuits and cakes also loads of tourist stuff.The shops around the market have loads of tourist tat and there are some places selling crystal and higher quality tourist stuff.it certainly is not what I would call a flea market.

Check The Prague Post - English-language newspaper, eponymous website (I don't know if it's actually printed anymore - Unky gus might). It should list any.
