40/8 Flea Market dates for 2017 – Santa Rosa Veterans Building

Show your support for nurses by shopping at the original 40/8 Veterans Flea Market! The proceeds from these five huge summer flea markets help the 40/8 Veterans Association fund scholarships for students in the Santa Rosa Junior College Nursing Program.

Vendor Information:

I am just a shopper and can’t register you sell there. You will need to contact the 40/8 organization yourself. To rent spaces, email the veterans at fm40and8@sonic.net, or leave your contact information on their answering machine at (707) 522-9391. Speak slowly and clearly, and spell your info, because, as they say, they’re “old, slow, and hard of hearing.”

2017 Dates:

  • May 7
  • June 11
  • July 9
  • August 20 (revised date to accommodate the new Sonoma County Fair dates)
  • September 10

Santa Rosa Veterans Memorial Building, 1351 Maple Ave.,Santa Rosa, Santa Rosa, California

(P.S. The smaller MojoSales Flea Markets occur most other Sundays throughout the year, also at the Veterans Building. Their contact email is MOJOSALES@HOTMAIL.COM.)

    When did you revise the schedule for August? Did you post any notices at the Flea, or make any announcements? I took a picture of your sign for all the dates for 2017 and never saw any notice that there had been a change. I drove to Berkeley yesterday to pick up my friend for the Flea. We arrived at 7:45 this AM and, needless to say, were very disappointed to find that there was no Flea today. I haven’t missed a Flea Market in years, so would greatly appreciate it if you have to make a change again, please put out plenty of notices. (I’m old too, so don’t usually check websites.) Thanks

    • As of my post dated February 3, 2017, the 40/8 vets group had the correct dates on their outgoing phone message, not to mention on the sandwich boards at the flea markets in May, June, and July. What more did you expect them to do to reach you individually? Magic?

      If you won’t check online, it would be prudent to use the telephone before driving for an hour. They can’t reach you by telepathy, and these elderly veterans are not going to knock on your door to tell you personally.

      If you READ my post, you will also see the following information, which I posted as a public service, not as a representative of the 40/8 organization:

      I am just a shopper and can’t register you to sell there. You will need to contact the 40/8 organization yourself.

      I’m sorry that the flea market was not on the date you expected, but this was not the fault of the 40/8 Veterans organization. You do have another chance, however, since the August flea market will be held on August 20.

  2. Yes, some of the regulars sell collectibles, but the flea market is held outside, and it can get hot, so keep that in mind if you bring vinyl. I haven’t sold anything there myself; I’m too busy buying!
    Check the beginning of the post for contact info for the 40/8 Veterans organization. They should be able to tell you everything you want to know (by email, or leave your phone # with them for a return call).

    Hello,
    What type of items do vendors sell there? Are there any antique/collectible vendors there? We have records, music memorabilia and various collectibles.
    Thanks
