This faire is known by locals as the "Alameda Flea" and is held on the first Sunday of each month.
Admission is more expensive the earlier you show up, so if you want the cheapest ticket, come at 9 a.m. or later for a $5 entry fee.
You'll find all kinds of things here. No, really. I've seen piles and piles of vintage rugs, an old school single person sauna form the 1950s, a vintage baby birth model for sex ed class, animal skulls, crystals, vintage denim, etc. Keep in mind that this is a swap meet, so don't expect bargain prices. You can, however, negotiate. I got a $75 bar cart down to $50!
I also love the many food trucks at this flea market, especially The Chairman!Recommended for:

There are so many vendors to search through and potentially find your next antique addition to your home. I love learning the history of the items and how they can be put to a new use.Recommended for:

More than 800 antique dealers set up booths on the tarmac of what was once the Alameda Naval Air Station. I hadn't gone in years when I went recently with some friends. I though ho hum. Another pseudo antiques fair. I was SO wrong. There were all sort of very cool old things there. OK, it wasn't garage sale cheap, but it was there and at very reasonable prices. I got a first-class chef's knife for my mom, and I saw some terrific collections of Bakelite jewelry for sale. If you don't like the price, bargain. It's the first Sunday of every month. Plenty of free parking. Wear good walking shoes. Free shuttle bus from parking to fair area.Recommended for:

If hunting for treasures and vintage fare is your kick, you have got to visit the number one outdoor antique show in Northern California. The first Sunday of every month thousands of people make a pilgrimage to Alameda Point which offers the most fabulous view of San Francisco just across the bay along with fabulous items for the home, apparel and jewelry. The finds are amazing! Vintage fashions, antiques, plants, gourmet food trucks, you name it, you will find it.
