Heian-Rakuichi is held every 2nd saturday in front of the Heian-Jingu shrine.
All the stuff sold in this market is handmade and there is also a workshop that is held for kids.
This is the best handicraft market that we can recommend for family with little children as there are Kyoto City Art Museum and Kyoto City Zoo around the Okazaki area.
Another flea market called "Heian Nomi-no-ichi" is held as well on every 10th.

Wide range of goods, like clothes, dishes, accessories, pastries or jams, are sold in this market and most of things you can find here are handmade!
This market has been long loved by the locals with the name "Hyakumanben-san" and the temple gets really crowded every months as many visitors from both Japan and abroad comes to enjoy the market.
For those who want to take time looking around all the stores, little tip is to just to go there before 10;00, as you might be difficult to move as you want during the busies time, which I'll say around noon.
