One of the things you should know about the Alemany flea market, is that this venue is rather small in comparison to the gargantuan Alameda Antiques Fair, but the Alemany flea market takes place once a week – versus Alameda’s once a month affair.
The Alemany Flea Market is a community-oriented outdoor Market which is known for its abundance of antiques and vintage valuables. The great assortment and variety of goods being offered for sale ranges from artisan items collected from all over the world to handmade collections, collector’s vinyl, furniture, old tools, sad looking headless dolls, vintage glasses/plates/clothes, antique furniture, used DVDs, VHS, broken music instruments, Vintage purses, hats, jewelry, toys, old coins and stamps, malfunctioning kitchen aids and all sorts of random things.
If you are desperate for some decorative items not covered in dust or simply jonesing for some new jewelry, the Alemany Flea Market is the place you want to visit. It is open every week, rain or shine, the entire year – though it is is a bit less attractive on the first Sunday of the month, when all of the best dealers tend to go sell at the Alameda Point Antiques Fair.
Garage Sale days happen on the first Sunday of every month, where non-regular vendors are invited along with the regulars to sell their garage sale items. Alemany Flea Market is a lively market and it is doable in a couple of hours, unlike the Alameda Antiques Faire which requires a full day commitment.
