Best 365-Days-A-Year Flea Market

Coliseum Swap Meet

Yes, the Coliseum Swap Meet is open 365 days a year. Yes, even on holidays. So, if you find yourself stuck on Christmas morning looking to do some last-minute shopping — or bored on New Year's Day, or in desperate need of some time at a flea market on any other day of the year — the East Oakland flea market will be there for you. It boasts rows upon rows of merchandise for you to peruse: You can find bras, used cookware, children's toys, work clothing, religious candles, fresh produce, tool boxes, and more. You can grab a beer, get your car windows tinted, hear a band play, and get a massage. You can make an entire day of it on any day your heart desires. Of course, everything for sale is always cheap and usually negotiable. Make sure you bring plenty of cash — you never know what treasures you'll walk away with.
