looking for a few antique items -- all this place has is new stuff from china or japan - and lots of junk mostly. Dirty, unkept lots. Won't be back.

Lots of great antique shops on San Carlos street in San Jose by very reptutable long-time established shops. Go there is you want to zero in on quality items for sale; lots of unannounced sales by various dealers regularly. Burned twice on eBay - best to look at stuff in person before buying.

This place has been around for years -this has to be one of the biggest flea markets around - they have all kinds of stuff for sale - some of the prices are great - some are a bit high - it is a lot of fun to look around and see what you can find - most of the vendors are friendly and helpful.

Being a mechanic/autobody tech I am always looking for old parts for cars. I come here to find them but they just don't have a very good used parts area. The place is more liek for clothes, arts and crafts or luggage.

I grew up going to this flea market as a Sunday Outing and I still enjoy going with my own daughter now. You can find some cool deals and I love that they have an area for used items and one for new items . IMy daughter love to shop for all sorts of hair ties and clips here and you can't beat the price.

I have 2 daughters. They both love to shop so I stay broke. When my older daughter comes home from school we always have a girls day out. We come here because it's cheap and so much fun looking at all the different merchandise. Must wear comfy shoes! You can buy anything here from batteries to a whole living room set! THey have the best silk flower stands. Some are already arranged or you can buy them individually. Best part is .. YOU CAN BARGAIN!!

This place is not different then any other flea market i have been to. If your looking for a deal, you better check the Internet. You could find some pretty cool things for sale, but you have to do some searching.

We like to take the kids here and give them some money to spend. Thye dont need much to buy a lot. I also buy things like hair accessories and socks for so cheap. Sometimes it feels that every booth has the same things then we dont go for awhile.

I Love this place, located in drive-in movie parking lot, its huge! Located off Snell Ave in sorta south San Jose, near Hwy 101. Weekends in summer very busy but dont ever see any issues or problems despite somewhat lacking in visible security. Its cheap to get in, $1? and free if you have an old tix stub from the movie place next door If I remember correctly. Tons of deals, any product you want, they have produce, duct tape, electronics, flowers are the top things i see for sale. Get there early though, its pretty picked through by early afternoon.

First of all this place is crowded like hell. Yes, things are cheap...but only in quality!!! Money wise they are not as cheap as u would expect them to be at a flea market. You would get much better stuff elsewhere at sales!!!! I spent 5 hrs there...and couldn't find a single item worth buying. The only thing u could consider are the carpets...i am sure even that would come on a better deal at local shops!!!

The name say it all. It's a flea market, with all kind of stuff on sale. Most of the time, you can find a good price there, but you must know the price and bargain well. Otherwise, you'll get taken. Here, you can buy vegetable and fruit directly from farmer, thus cheaper and fresher compare with buying from the super market. Also, it's a nice place to hang out sometime too.

PROS:
CONS: has to pay to get in

The Capitol Flea Market is huge!! You can easily spend a whole day here just browsing through all the vendors. Unfortunately, it tends to get a little crowded during the peak times so it might be a good idea to go early or on a weekday when it is open. It is pretty much a San Jose establishment, so even if you're not really into flea markets it is definitely worth going to at least once just to see what it is like.

A ridiculous number of vendors come to this monstrosity, and if you take it slow you can spend a good part of your day here. There're usually people selling food and drinks if you get hungry, and plenty of people selling anything you could possibly want for cheap. A little harder to haggle here compared to other markets because the number of people visiting ensures that there's probably someone who will pay full price, but it's doable.

The Capitol Flea Market is smaller that the one on Berryessa Road and most of the items sold here are used stuff that you would get in traditional swap meet style flea markets. This is open on Thursdays, Fridays and the weekends. On the weekends they have live entertainment available.

The capitol flea market is definitely the biggest flea market I've ever seen. There are all kinds of stuff. you can find anything here in a good price. If you look hard, maybe you can find a treasure. It is crowded here and it is dirty. There are a lot of seller and sometimes you can even bargain over the price. It is a fun place.

One of the biggest flea markets in the bay area, they have an amazing collection of fruits, clothes and everything else that you can think of. Highly recommend to check this place out on next weekend. Make sure that you reach either early for freshest produce or very late for the best bargains. Parking can be a royal pain so make sure you take the paid parking.

PROS: Huge place
CONS:

This flea market is very big. There are so many vendors there. If you are going to just look around and shop then this is the place for you. If you have something specific in mind, you'll have to put on your walking shoes and search. But you most likely will eventually find it if you are patient. A big plus for the free parking.

There are two flea markets in the San Jose Area, and this is not our favorite one. However, the nice thing about this flea market is that you do not have to pay for parking. You do, have to pay a small entrance fee. They have different sections depending on what you are looking for. It seemed like most of it was a huge garage sale though. People re-selling used things, which is good for people who are into that. I just would prefer to get good deals on newer things. From what I could see there is only one bathroom facility but it was not crowded when I was in there even though there were tons of people at the flea market. I also did not see a lot of tables and chairs for you to sit if you wanted to stop and eat.

PROS: no parking fee.
CONS: shortage of bathrooms, eating space, eating options

If you don't find what you're looking for here it probably doesn't exist. They sell everything. Some items are new and others are used (and some it's obvious people have cleared out the junk from their garage). It's dirt cheap to get in (I think $2.50 parking). There are food booths (not great food). In the summer take plenty of water and sunscreen - its gets very hot here.

This Flea Market is very big , one of the biggest that I have been to. I like really near it so it's convenient whenever I'm in dire need of something. They have many sellers there that sell anything that you can think of including produce. I would recommend that you stay away from the churros because that gave me a stomach ache. A lot of people come here everyday that it's open. You can find very cheap stuff here. The only thing that I do not like is that they don't sell animals here anymore.. I was looking for a pet and came to find that they couldn't sell anything but fishes.

This is a huge flea market, they sell absolutely everything. It can be a little overwhelming when you first arrive. It's worth a trip, you will never come away empty handied. Tons of bargains (and many of the stall-keepers are willing to bartar). Parking is cheap. In the summer be warned, it get's very hot here. You can get something to eat here, but like many flea markets, the selection is very limited.

this place truly does have everything. i guess the saying is true when they say that one mans junk is another persons treasure. they had so many vintage items and new items as well. very cheap deals on the newly released dvd and games. i really enjoyed it. it was a nice place. but it was so dirty and unclean.

Its a huge flea market with many many sellers and buyers. Its good to go on a nice sunny day. They also have a market to buy your produce. They sell shoes like taylor chucks in good condition and for a cheaper price than they have in malls. You can practically find anything in here. They sell towels, shoes, toys, clothes, food, and a lot more! The food is okay. Bathrooms are kinda dirty. Theres a small truck that drives around selling drinks on hot sunny day. Kind of like the ice cream truck going around but the guy sells drinks. The place is great to find all your needs for a really cheap price.

There's plenty of parking and admission is only $1.25. There's a food court (but the food is might expensive), there's a bar and alcoholic beverages, there's a farmers market and there's the rest of the flea market where the sellers sell their items. The place isn't the best looking place in the world, and it can be quite smelly in some areas. I suggest wearing walking shoes that are dirty because it could get dirty. There are a lot of sellers here and a lot of things here. You just have too dig in deep and you'll find a treasure. The stuff here's great and really cheap. Some vendors are selling things straight from the factory's and they're new.

PROS: cheap admission, plenty parking, a lot of sellers.
CONS: dirty, smelly areas.
