Overwhelming and 90 degrees in the shade, but what a feast for shoppers and vintage hounds. It helps to be a Baby Boomer, as you can actually identify the stuff that the kids are swooning over (and wondering what it was used for back in the good old days.) Clothing, jewelry, linens, furniture, vinyl, collectibles, pictures, mirrors, artwork, glassware, silver,... More

I have been attending this collectibles market sporadically for years. Don't let the cooler winter days keep you from going. This last June there were over 900 dealers/sellers! Most folks go in at 9am when the entrance price drops to $5. Something for everyone, including food, coffee, wonderfully odoriferous porta potties.... My suggestion is to start at the back and...

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...

Well, I can say I've been to a lot of flea markets. This one beats them all hands down. This is a flea market specializing in antiques and collectibles not car rims and tools made in China. There are hundreds of vendors, and what surprises me is how each vendor manages to set up appealing displays of their merchandise. It... More

The Alameda Flea Market is not for the casual browser. First off, the market itself is really big. 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. There aren't too many people there who have just cleaned out their... More

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
