San Jose Flea Market
What may be the world's largest flea market (that is the claim, anyway) covers nearly 120 acres and offers lots of parking. Browse goods from more than 2,000 sellers, some commercial, some private. Everything is here: arts and crafts, produce, clothing, furniture, tires, bicycles, music, electronics, collectibles, shops, markets, barbecues or knick-knacks. It is a great destination for the bargain hunter.
After reading lot of 'must-do' activities in San Jose area, we decided not to miss this golden opportunity when we were here for sometime.
Also, since we were on a visit, trip to the flea market meant buying some gifts/souviners...
Quality - Anyways, there was nothing that we could even lay our hands on, such disgusting third-grade second hand stuff, that you would not want to waste time in checking it out...forget about negotiating/bargaining to get a good deal.
Price - Price are atleast 'quoted' reasonably high. Not sure if bragaining could get good deals. But, you can get better stuff, returnable etc at Wallmart instead.
Atmosphere - Filthy and completely unorganized. Bad smell of food and bad looks of Restrooms.
We could travel all places and were out in 40 mins straight.....with nothing, but irritation!!
Advice - Stay away from this place or you'll end up wasting lot of time here.
This place is huge! It's free to get in, although parking's $6. It's impossible to see it all, so just go till your kids are done. There's lots of places to eat, and the bathrooms are clean, spacious, and well-maintained. There's something for everyone here.
Everything mentioned above about what is contains, also, there are ATMs if you need cash. Best thing I found is that it is a great place to buy souvenirs or gifts, in case you have a lots of relatives or friends; and the people are really nice. You can also find a lot of places to eat and children will have fun, after 12:00 it will be really crowded, that means keep you eye on your kids because it is a hassle if they get lost and will ruin your day, plan to get some kind of a rolling shopping bag since you don�t know what you will find. One more thing worth mentioning is that if you liked some ladies bags then get the price down about 40%. Overall it is a nice experience, and if you get to San Jose, this is a must see place.
