Palenque is a spanish word for wooden palisade or stockade or an area enclosed by such a structure for defense, public festivals or some other purpose.

The word also used to describe a pathway or cluster of tables set up at some place of gathering such as a theatre, tournament or market, and it is from this latter sense that tagalog palengke likely derives, while america’s palenque was a gathering-place of indios.

Indigenous mayan languages of central america used the word palenque as a gathering place of local natives, as well as in latin america using the same word.

A flea market is a type of bazaar that rents space to people who want to sell or barter merchandise. Used goods, low quality items, and high quality items at low prices are commonplace.

Many markets offer fresh produce, unique products, old clothes, and plants from local farms. Renters of the flea market are vendors. It may be indoors, as in a warehouse or school gymnasium; or outdoors, as in a field or parking lot or under a tent.

Flea markets can be held annually or semi annually, others may be conducted monthly, on weekends, or daily. Vendors may range from a family that is renting a table for the first time to sell a few unwanted household items such in garage sales.

In australian english, they are called ‘trash and treasure markets’. In manila, the word is tianggê which could be a loanword from the hokkien or possibly from the nahuatl tianguis via mexican spanish.

The more indigenous term in tagalog is, of course, talipapâ.

In India it is known as gurjari or shrukawadi bazaar or even as juna bazaa]. In the uk, it is known as car boot sales or trunk of car if one is in the us. While indoors such as school or church hall, then it is usually known as jumble sale or a bring and buy sale.

In quebec and france, they are often called mMarché aux puces, while in belgium, the name brocante or vide-grenier is normally used.

Another claim is that flea market is a literal translation of the french marché aux puces, an outdoor bazaar in paris, named after those pesky little parasites of the order siphonaptera or wingless bloodsucker that infested the upholstery of old furniture brought out for sale.
