Treasure Island Flea Market

We went for our morning walk today at the first weekend of the Treasure Island Flea Market.  Treasure Island, if you’re not familiar, is an island in the middle of the San Francisco Bay between San Francisco and Oakland.  It was created in the 30’s from fill dredged from the bay, for the Golden Gate International Exposition.  It became a naval base after the World’s Fair and was a major Navy departure point for sailors leaving to the Pacific.  Treasure Island is now decommissioned and being used for other things…. Like a flea market with the most awesome views ever.

Here’s the panorama from standing across the street from the Flea Market:


In as far as flea markets are concerned, it was okay… It was sparse, really, compared to the Alameda Point Flea Market, but it has potential, great scenery, and some fun vendors selling everything from mini donuts, plants, vintage stuff, and crafts.
mini donuts
And you can’t beat that view.

      I was hoping for more too, but it’s probably unfair to compare this first run with the Alameda Point Flea Market. We bought a painted sign as a housewarming present and some kettle corn. I’ll definitely go back to check it out again in a few months. The view can’t be beat!
