When it comes to San Jose’s shopping scene, we love a good treasure hunt — and a good bargain. Our city is home to several stellar flea markets, cool co-ops, fabulous vintage shops, and resale gems. So get in, we’re going shopping.
Berryessa Flea Market, 1590 Berryessa Rd.
Known as “La Pulga” to many residents, this flea market has been around since 1960. It’s host to 6,000+ vendors every week and is a social and cultural hub to locals for affordable goods. It’s also home to many independent events from Pop-Up San Jose and Culture Night Market.
Capitol Flea Market, 3630 Hillcap Ave.
Drawing nearly 1.3 million visitors a year, this swap meet takes place at the West Wind Drive-In site. It boasts fresh produce that is up to 40% less than what you’d buy at grocery stores + admission is less than $1 most days.
De Anza Flea Market, Parking Lot B, 21250 Stevens Creek Blvd., Cupertino
Started 50 years ago, this market is run by the De Anza Student Government and garners ~$300,000 annually for a variety of student programs. Hosted every first Saturday of the month, feel free to browse from a little over 800 vendor stalls.
MOMENT DTSJ, 60 N. San Pedro St.
San Jose Made launched its local micro-retail storefronts in 2018 which promotes four local small businesses for varying durations. The current tenants include pup-friendly charcuterie vendor Woofboard, houseplant store Plantslut, and custom keycap maker Tiny Keyboard Shop.
MOMENT JTown, 208 Jackson St.
With the success of its downtown flagship, SJ Made expanded to Japantown — bringing four micro-retailers into the spotlight on the corner of Jackson + North Fifth Street. Look forward to holiday shopping as this MOMENT storefront hosts festive activations.
