This is one of the biggest outdoor markets I've found. If you want to see it all come early and plan to stay well into the early afternoon. Don't worry there's food stands and trucks to keep you going! Firstly, the actual event is called "Alameda Point Antiques Faire" but the management company is called " Michaan's Auctions" (Also in...

Being that we arrived at 11am and already tired from the night before, I didn't hold onto much hope for an enjoyable experience. I am happy to report that we were all pleasantly surprised, this place is great, it's huge and it's got variety! I also really liked that it was outside in the fresh air and even though there...

Even if you go through it fairly quickly, it can take you at least three hours to see all of the vendors' offerings. Second, it is primarily a collectibles market.

1000 + vendors of antiques and collectibles. You can always find a great deal and unique items. One of the best outdoor markets to visit... Good food, on the bay and more booths than you can get through on a day

The Antiques by the Bay show put on at Alameda Point the first Sunday of every month does not disappoint in the view department and it does offer a wide variety of interesting antiques and collectables. Despite their claims, there are a lot of reproductions and stuff made to look old like reworked furniture and old linens made into purses.... More
