Known throughout the Bay Area by swap meet aficionados as perhaps the best, most colorful and most diverse of the local flea markets, the Ashby Flea Market is not to be missed by seekers of the great buy, the gently used and the just plain unusual. Like most fleas, items run the gamut from clothing, furniture, toys and bric-a-brac. But you will also find handmade local crafts, artwork organic produce and imports from around the world especially if the African masked people are there. The atmosphere is laid-back, friendly and very Berkeley.
