    Flea markets in general will be full of repros, but you can find field gear at good prices. Antique shops are expensive and also have repros (less that flea markets). Used book stores also sell antiques. Krakow is not cheap and you get tourist prices.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Hello, in Krakow you have the flea market behind the railway station. But it is very special and copies are horrible. It is not possible to imagine...There is a shop in the town, but the seller have not many things because internet and so much tourists. Outside, you have the airforce Museum. Small Museum and not beautiful, many planes are covered with rust.
    In the Ghetto, there is a small flea market. Serious but small. You must see the Schindler Factory.

    They have a spitfire and other planes in this barrack, you mustt ask to see the other barrack with planes. It's non public but I think they can open for you.
    The castle is very important.
    The miltary shop is in Florianska street, at right, going to the main place, it is in a court, so you must look a panel Militaria, this man is here since 1990!
