To FLEA or not to FLEA, SF breakdown
1. Alemany Flea Market- Every(literally rain or shine) Sunday. This flea is more like a big freakin garage sale. Lots of junk and lots and lots of treasures. Prices can vary from dirt cheap to WTF. Alemany is a guaranteed score!
2. Candlestick Park Antiques & Collectibles Faire- Random weekends depending on 49ers schedule. If you are familiar with the Alameda Flea then this faire is a bit similiar to that. This one is not the massive size of the Alameda, but still a pretty decent day killer. Prices will be a bit higher than Alemany as many vendors are professional dealers....and they have their own website.
3. Treasure Island Flea- Last weekend of the month(sat & sun). Honestly, I haven't been since it just opened last month. I think it caters to the likes of "all of the above." Lots of different vendors, and options of things to look at. Personally, I don't really like craft fairs, so I might wait to hear from someone who's been before I make the leap. If you are looking for a reason to go to Treasure Island then this would be an awesome reason! Awesome views all around!
In addition, multiple SF neighborhoods have pop up flea's on nice days! If you see one, then check it out cause you might find something really awesome!
