1. Youngstorget
This used to be Oslo's greatest vegetable market and a place for political demonstrations. In the summertime there are activities for children and adults, with concerts and performances. There is a statue in memory of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and a restored fountain. Fresh fruit and vegetables are still sold here by local farmers, as well as clothes and various exotic handcrafts. The bazaar halls at the back of the market square contain various small restaurants, cafés and shops. The large building behind the bazaar halls is the old police station. The Opera house is just opposite the market square.

2. Tonica
Tonica is one of those special shops that has been around for some time. Established in 1976, this is one of the few second-hand shops that sell designer clothes, although it also stocks more ordinary items. The beauty of the shop is in the new stock that comes in every day, so there are always treasures to find. The atmosphere is exciting and you can spend ages browsing around. It is mostly women's clothing, but there is a selection of men's dinner suits on offer too. Take the time to get away from the mainstream and you will be more than glad you did.
Closed on Mondays, this shop is open every first Saturday of the month. Tonica accepts no bank cards or credit cards, but you are free to pay for your garments in with both Dollars, Pounds, Francs, Pesetas or almost any other kind of cash.

3. Underground
The trendiest second-hand shop in Oslo offers a large variety of jackets, dresses, trousers, sweaters, suits and many more things that you will not find in any other shop. Most of the garments are very special, made in the sixties and seventies.
The shop is part of UFF, a company that collects and sells used clothes. Profits are donated to charity. As Underground's popularity has grown, the prices have increased as well. Now it is quite expensive, but there are still good opportunities for making a good haul!

Underground has men's, women's and children's clothes.
