Where to Shop in Alameda
Every first Sunday of the month, treasure hunters from around the Bay Area descend on Alameda’s West End for the Alameda Point Antiques Faire, the largest flea market in Northern California. Here you can browse some 800 booths for vintage wares, all at least 20 years old.
Looking for something fresher? Stop by the Alameda Farmers’ Market on Haight Ave. every Tuesday and Saturday morning for seasonal produce, freshly baked bread and sweets, and local meats and seafood.
One of the brand’s 10 Bay Area locations, Therapy Alameda offers modern home goods, cheeky gifts, locally made jewelry, and a curated selection of sharp apparel.
If you’re in the market for home furnishings, there are deals to be found at the Pottery Barn Warehouse Outlet. Set in an industrial hangar building, this under-the-radar outlet sells discounted furniture and accessories from San Francisco–based Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma Home, and West Elm.
Books Inc. is one of Alameda’s dedicated independent bookstores, featuring bestsellers, classics, local titles, and everything in between.
