Description: Don't forget to bring your dog along to this huge flea market featuring tons of craft, food and drink vendors, food trucks galore, and cocktails. Enjoy a day in the sun at this dog-friendly event that occurs on the last weekend every month. There are plenty of spots to stop and enjoy brunch or lunch with beautiful Bay views as a backdrop. This flea market has been around for 6 years, and has been growing steadily, but was recently bought out and rebranded "TreasureFest". You'll find new and used items from a variety of vendors throughout the event. It gets crowded, so I would recommend going early, but we lucked out on Pride weekend, arrived at 10, and only waited a few minutes to get in. When we visited, they had just about every kind of food truck imaginable. Their website said they had 25 food trucks, but it seemed liked they had a lot more. They also had a lot of great vegetarian options, two bars, and even fresh breads and pastries. There were many vendors as well, selling everything from antiques to clothes to hand made furniture. This is a great place to find a gift for someone. There were plenty of clean Porta Potties with hand washing stations, and lost of tables and chairs where you could sit and enjoy the views of the bridge. There was even a dog-friendly photo booth in an antique looking restored trailer. For $5 you could take pictures, which they printed out and also emailed to you. Find What's Up Photos at the end of the flea market. Most of the vendors were extremely nice and offered our dogs samples and treats. There are several dog-centric vendors offering collars and fancy dog treats.
Many of the vendors have dog water bowls at their booths, and there are trash cans throughout the event.
