The Alameda Antiques Faire is a huge flea market crammed with vendors, open on the first Sunday of every month. Sam and I made the trek (not easy using public transportation, especially because the Alameda bus stop closest to the market is temporarily blocked) the first week of March.
It was a treasure trove of antiques, big and small, and also a pretty large variety of food trucks. Unfortunately, we always forget that the East Bay is about 10 degrees warmer than the city, so we were sweltering soon enough and there’s no shade on the open pavement. (Fun fact: when the Flea Market is not set up, the same field is used by Myth Busters to test out their stunts!)
Also unfortunately, we spent all our cash on lunch and the ATM machines were out of money… so, we couldn’t actually buy anything. But we still had fun window shopping!
