OK, treasure hunters.  Ready?  I’ve compiled this handy list of flea markets and faires in the Bay Area & beyond just for you.  And yep, it’s still the most up-to-date, comprehensive list on the web – with over twice as many listings.  If you’d like to have your flea market or flea-market related event listed on my site for free, please send me a message through my contact page with the scoop!  I’ve even organized all of the flea markets geographically.  Did I mention that I have a degree in Geography?  Can’t think of a better way to use it…

  1. there is a new flea starting up in June in San Rafeal, behind the Civic Center. (second Sundays)

    1. Hey Jody:

      Thanks for the tip! Do you happen to know who is running it? I’ll try to find out more and add it to the list. Thanks so much!

  2. I drove to the Los Altos Foothill flea market today and it didn’t exist! Huge bummer. Does anyone know if it is a different day or location?

    1. My husband and I had to go up to Foothill College in August 2011, security person said they no longer have a flea market.

  3. What about the Branham High School Flea Market in San Jose. Third Thursday according to the website.

    1. Thanks, Jennifer. I’ll check it out and add it to the list! Thanks for stopping by! Mimi

  4. I am down sizing my home and would like to sell my odds and ends at a flea market, but don’t have the time. I would like to find someone who already a booth and would be willing to go 50/50 with me? In Alameda, Berkeley, Oakland areas.

    1. Hi Denise:

      You might try contacting one of the Flea Markets or Faires directly to see if they may know if any vendors who would be willing to do this with you. Maybe try the West End Flea market in Alameda, as they are a newer flea market. Just check the list on my site for contact information.

    1. Hi Kathy: Thanks for dropping by and letting me know that this Flea Market is open every week-end, year round. I’ll update my listing! Happy Flea-ing, Mimi

  5. I know Sacramento Antique Faire is not Easy Bay but thought it deserved a mention

    1. Hi Kathy: I haven’t ventured out to Sacramento yet, but I’ll look into this one and see about adding it to my list of faires. Might be a fun road trip. Thanks, and take care, Mimi

  6. Please help. I thought there was an annual flea market in Benicia during August (thought it was advertised in Sunset magazine). I can find no information on-line. Have you heard of this?

    1. Not BENICIA but there is a HUGE annual Flea Markrt in SAN JUAN BATISTA (North of Salinas off of Hwy 101 every AUGUST. You treasure hunters and dealers need to ck this one out! all throughout the wide antique store part of downtown (This is the MAIN downtown commerce of this very cool small town). ALWAYS great finds -far more than any pocket can deal with. You’ll leave deleriously happy with only as much money left as you can stand to withold. Prices vary, but PLENTY are low on GREAT stuff from china to books to jewelry to paper to records (I should NOT tell you!) to antique furniture, signs, gewgas, toys, trinkets… vintage galore.

      The REAL big deal is 25 miles away every JULY: the annual MOSS LANDING Flea Market. MEGA huge – expect to take the entire day – cool seafood restaurants surround and within. Bring WHEELS (cart), bags, jacket for morning, GET THERE EARLY. It is the MOTHERLODE.

      1. Hey Jeff: Thanks for stopping by and letting me know. I’ll add it to the list! Happy Hunting, Mimi

  7. I have been trying to get rid of 4 houses full of stuff. (Yes 4 Houses)I have been to several markets to sell, Which I still have way too much. Anyway, I went to the market below but it got rained out so I can’t give you a review but I didn’t see it on your list. I am going to try Alemany in S.F. tomorrow to sell some antiques, paintings (Louis Icart,Carey Thompson)and some un-ordinary items. I’ll let you know how it turns out. Let’s hope it’s worth the $45 fee.
    Also, Thank you for your great site.

    San Pablo Flea Market
    6100 San Pablo Ave
    Emeryville, CA 94608

    1. Hi Chris: I’ve added your flea market to my list. Thanks for letting me know about it.

      Happy Thrifting,
      Mimi
