San Jose Flea Market Trip | Nov. 1

San Jose Flea Market

For 50 years the San Jose Flea Market has been the place loved ones have made memories while playing, shopping, and eating together. Today, it remains one of the best destinations in the region to spend an inexpensive and fun-packed day. A vintage carousel, mini-Ferris wheel, and play ground with inflatable slides are just the beginning.

Meander through colorful alleys and treasure-laden corridors. Conquer the cool depths of the arcade. Then, take a break and choose from freshly prepared international or California cuisine in one of our many restaurants. Or, go "fair-style" and explore while you munch on a corn dog or savor the smoked goodness from one of their outdoor barbecues.

This is a wonderful opportunity for single service members to get fresh healthy food for their refrigerators and for families to get away and relax together. Every member of the family will find something to love!

The San Jose Flea Market is a small city with a life of its own. Find everything you need using our shopping directory, from organic vegetables and fruits in our quarter-mile long produce row, to stereo equipment, religious supplies and even a barber shop. Tackling your shopping list was never so much fun. What a great way to get some Christmas shopping done!

If the afternoon sun sends you hunting for some shade, you'll find it, along with a tasty selection of ice creams and cool beverages. Relax on a bench and listen to the free live music. We feature authentic mariachis and acapella oldies-and everything in between.

  • We recommend you bring along a back pack, large sack, or a wheeled cart for all your purchases.
  • Last day to sign up is 31 October by 6 p.m.
  • $25 per person for transportation to and from San Jose
