That's a flea market.

I've come across references to a tag sale which I've deduced is what here on the west coast is a garage or yard sale going by another name in other parts of the country. I've never seen a garage sale where the garage was sold or a yard sale where the yard was up for bids. Go figure. I think cars in England have bonnets, not hoods.
