“san jose flea market - don't go”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2006

I would not recommend going to the San Jose Flea Market. According to their website, they are NorthAmerica's largest and are open Wed.-Sun. I went on a Wednesday afternoon and nothing was open! The place was a ghost town except for a few maintenance workers. It might be great on the weekends, but don't do it on Wednesday!

“Great place to buy souvenirs or gifts.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2004

There are ATMs if you need cash. Best thing I found is that it is a great place to buy souvenirs or gifts, in case you have a lots of relatives or friends; and the people are really nice. You can also find a lot of places to eat and children will have fun, Sundays after 12:00 PM, it will be really crowded, that means keep you eye on your kids because it is a hassle if they get lost and will ruin your day, plan to get some kind of a rolling shopping bag since you don’t know what you will find. One more thing worth mentioning is that if you like some ladies bags then get the price down about 40%. Overall it is a nice experience, and if you get to San Jose, this is a must see place.

“San Jose's worth visiting place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2004

This flea market is the place to go. It's open everyday of the week, you find things for everything at reasonable prices, the best thing there is the mercado, the place where veggies, chiles, fruit, and other things are sold. It also has many children activities, like a carousel, pony rides, arcade games, and slides. It keeps the children entertained while you take a break and sit on nearby benches. Also they have a steak, chicken, rib place where live music plays with a bunch of picnic tables. The parking does cost 5 dollars but it is all you pay to enjoy in the delight of the environment.
