SAN JOSE FLEA MARKET

Located in the heart of the north-east San Jose in California, the San Jose Flea Market is one of the largest open-air flea market in the U.S. It was originally created by George Bumb Sr. back in 1960, after he visited Paris and got inspired by France’s capital city’s flea market (and particularly the Saint Ouen Flea Market), as well as a few swap meets in Los Angeles. 60 years later, the San Jose Flea Market has become a true California landmark with over four million visitors flocking there each year. The 8 miles (13 km) worth of aisles allows for over 2,000 vendors – which makes it almost as big as the iconic Rose Bowl Flea Market and it 2,500 stalls – to sell an array of goods ranging from jewelry, furniture, collectibles and clothing, to fruit, vegetables, toys, books, cars, car stereo equipment, toiletries, artwork, tools, cookware, and cosmetics, among other things. This is no wonder why with a population and land mass larger than some small towns (120 acres), the San Jose Flea Market is a major contributor to the income of many Silicon Valley families! However, despite being a strong landmark in California, the San Jose Flea Market has lost some of its shine over the past few years: It is not anymore the community flea market it used to be, where local merchants and artisans showcased their wares and second hand treasures to visiting customers, but instead, it has slowly drifted to what most seasoned flea market shoppers consider a cheap swap meet.
