Once home to the 1932/1984 Summer Olympics and the 1994 FIFA World Cup, the Rose Bowl Flea Market is a true legend among flea market enthusiasts in California. More than 20,000 flea market enthusiasts and over 2,500 merchants gather each month at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena in one huge swap meet. No wonder why it claims to be the most well-attended and vendor profitable flea market on the West Coast. And its reputation extends even beyond the U.S.: the market is known around the world for its uniqueness, the quality of the vendors, and the presence of buyers of all ages.

This monthly appointment for lovers of antiques, vintage and quirky things, is somewhat of an exception in the world of flea markets, as similar events of this magnitude usually only happen a few times a year, as they require significant resources in terms of infrastructure and staff. Whether you’re looking to (re)furnish your home, landscape your garden, cook dinner, update your wardrobe or even start an art collection, this flea market has a little bit of everything for everyone!

In terms of the range of products on display, the Rose Bowl Flea Market is filled with anything and everything the heart of a flea market enthusiast could ever desire or dare to dream of. In fact, there’s little you won’t find at this flea market, whether it’s new, antique, or just old. Antiques and collectibles, vintage clothes & jewelry, shoes, vintage furniture, arts & crafts, ceramics and glassware, fabric, vintage photography, prints and paintings, bikes, costumes, music, and every imaginable type of merchandise are all to be found in one place.

All in all, if you don’t mind spending the money and want a fun time walking around or you have something in mind you want to buy, the Rose Bowl Flea Market is a great place to go and check out. After all, since the Rose Bowl Flea Market is really full of surprises, you never know what you will take home with you! And who knows, you might even cross paths with a celebrity during your visit! The Rose Bowl Flea Market is also known to be attended by showbiz stars and famous interior designers who share the same passion for antiques and vintage.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
