If you don't know where to look, it's easy to get the idea that there aren't many markets in Luxembourg.. but there are!
Luxembourg may not have quite as strong a market culture as some other countries, but that doesn't mean there aren't quite a few to choose from. From big annual or bi-annual flea markets to weekly farmers markets, there's something for everyone.

For up-to-date information on markets around Luxembourg, see the below links. This is not an exhaustive list, and there are several smaller (and more or less regular) markets around the country. If you want to find one closer to you, it's not a bad idea to give your local 'commune' (municipal office) a ring - they'll know!
