Alameda Flea Market - Alameda, CALIFORNIA + Bonus: Top 10 San Francisco Bay Area Flea Markets

The Alameda Point Antiques Faire is the largest antique show in Northern California. Held on the first Sunday of each month, the Faire boasts over 800 vendor booths.

Because of its strict vendor rules (all items for sale must be at least twenty years old) and the scarcity of quality antique shows in the Bay Area, the Alameda Point Antiques and Collectibles Faire regularly draws a crowd of high-end antique dealers and serious collectors. In fact, the show’s co-founder and organizer, Alan Michaan, insists that it shouldn’t be called a flea market.

But that shouldn’t scare off the casual shopper; there are still plenty of bargains to be had. The Alameda Point Antiques Faire is arguably the largest antiques fair in Northern California. Visitors can browse 800 booths of vintage stereos, clothing, furniture, jewelry, art, pottery, vintage and antique home decor, books and collectibles, ’60s-style dining room furniture, classic Barbie dolls and more.

“You can find something for a dollar or a thousand dollars,” says Michaan, who also runs a nearby estate sale and auction in conjunction with the monthly show. The location itself is also worth a visit: The Alameda Point Antiques and Collectibles Faire is located on a former naval base airstrip on a picturesque stretch of San Francisco Bay.

The Faire and estate sales are held the first Sunday of every month, rain or shine, even on holidays such as Easter. Auction previews are held the following Tuesday and Wednesday.
