Looking for a great day trip? Why not head out to the flea market?
The Alameda Flea Market is held on the first Sunday of every month (www.antiquesbybay.com) and really is a great one to visit. If you have a "hunt" mentality, then a flea market is the place for you. There are usually many people there anticipating the perfect find at the right price which adds to the excitement of the day. For the best finds arrive early. Gates open at 6 a.m.
