We love festivals in San Francisco. Who doesn’t? Treasure Island Fest (formerly Treasure Island Flea) is a great time year round. Flea market shopping is a summer time guilty pleasure. Cities all around the world can claim the biggest, or oldest flea markets. Treasure Island has had one of the best flea markets in Northern California.
This modern update definitely makes it a mini festival. There are fantastic, juried artisans showing locally made goods. There are food trucks. We LOVE food trucks in California! There’s live music. The Kids Zone has rides and games just for the young ones. In the DIY Zone, you can learn how to make cool things like hula-hoops.
Treasure Island Fest runs the last full weekend of every month through November. San Francisco hot summer days really begin in August. But fog or shine, it’s a good time. There is always more than just shopping. Each month has its own theme. It’s a pleasant way to spend the day with one of the best views of The City
Did I mention the food trucks?
