The first Saturday of every month the San Jose Flea Market gives away selling spaces for free. This event always has filled our market to capacity with vendors. That’s 80 acres of shops, rides, and dining options for your family to enjoy!
Entrepreneurial families participate in Flea-for-All Saturdays to make all profit from free garage sale spaces. Early in the morning, they arrive at the Flea Market to await space assignment and organize their merchandise displays. At no cost, vendors take advantage of the Flea Market’s reputation for garage sales to make a profit from selling their loot. Through 50 years, we have perfected a system to ensure a lively shopping center.
“It’s all profit for me today! I talk with people all day long, sell my loot at great prices, and I feel like a winner,” said John Smith, garage sale enthusiast and free space recipient. “I like knowing my item is going to a good home,”
As a customer you will love slowly strolling down each aisle finding exactly what you’re shopping for and items that you just can’t live without.
Flea-for-All Saturday vendors keep coming back because the experience is so easy. Their variety makes finding what you’re shopping for easier, but it might be a hard task forcing yourself not to pick up an extra item two.

A tomatillo salsa recipe is priceless! Jarred salsas just can't match fresh homemade salsa. You can find all of the ingredients in our Farmers’ Market and it so easy to make.
Tomatillo Salsa Ingredients:
8 cups Tomatillos
2-3 Tomatoes (depending on the size)
1 bunch Cilantro
1 clove Garlic
1 Jalapeno Pepper
1 Serrano Pepper (You can use more than one pepper depending upon how spicy you like your salsa. You can also use a Habanero Pepper if you are really adventurous!)
First, soak the tomatillos in hot water. Pull off the husks scrub them clean.
Cut the tomatoes and onions into quarters. Place the tomatillos, tomatoes, onions, and pepper(s) into a roasting pan or cast iron skillet. (You will probably have to do it in batches)
Place into the oven and broil, turning over every 5 to 10 minutes. You want the vegetables to be crisp and brown. That should take around 30 minutes.
While that is broiling, put the garlic and pepper(s) in a food processor and chop until they are very fine.
Take half of the roasted tomatillos and add them to the processor. Blend them until completely liquified.
Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse the food processor until the salsa has the desired consistency. (We personally like a pretty chunky salsa!)
