Since its 2011 debut, TreasureFestSF has been a hot spot for Bay Area flea market fans.
This flea market started to give indie designers a place to showcase their goods, the flea offers handmade, upcycled and one-of-a-kind merchandise alongside traditional vintage flea market finds. When you get hungry, the food options are as diverse as the merchandise.
Originally called "Treasure Island Flea" it moved to a new location in September of 2016. TreasureFestSF is located along California Avenue & Ave. N on Treasure Island, San Francisco, CA 94130. Check their aerial Map.

TreasureFestSF Shopping Tips
- The view is amazing, but it gets breezy. Dress in layers.
- If you like to haggle, expect to get better prices toward the end of the day. Also, the vendors selling handmade merchandise may not negotiate as much as those selling used and vintage goods.
- Concessions are available, including specialty foods. Don't eat before you get there. Visit the fabulous food trucks instead.
- Live music and full bar available to add to your weekend fun.
- Don't take photos of handcrafted and repurposed merchandise without getting the sellers' permission. While it's true that you might be able to make an item yourself, you didn't make that one.
- Get cash before you go to TreasureFestSF. Though some vendors do take credit cards, many don't. You'll have more haggling leverage with cash anyway.
- ATM machine is available.
