Potential VENDORS, please READ:
I am not affiliated with this flea market, so I can’t answer questions about it here on the blog. To rent a space, email the veterans at firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.” (But they still have their senses of humor, obviously!)
Coming May through September, my favorite flea markets of the year!
One Sunday a month throughout the summer, local veterans hold a huge flea market in the parking lot of the Santa Rosa Veterans Building. Why do these elderly veterans and their spouses put in so much work? Because this flea market funds several substantial scholarships for nursing students at Santa Rosa Junior College — and veterans appreciate nurses.
These are huge flea markets with locals and many out-of-town vendors. Support the nursing students by arriving hungry and buying a hot dog, or a danish and coffee, from the snack bar. (If you’re a vendor, see my note at the top of this post for flea market contact information.)
The 2016 dates are all on Sundays, open to the shopping public from 7:30 am until around 3 pm:
- May 8
- June 19
- July 10
- Aug 14
- September 11
Support our veterans by supporting nursing students, and if you find any amazing deals along the way, feel free to brag about them in the comments section below.
Santa Rosa Veterans Memorial Building, 1351 Maple Ave.,Santa Rosa, Santa Rosa, California
(P.S. The smaller MojoSales Flea Markets occur throughout the year, also on Sundays, also at the Veterans Building. Their contact email is MOJOSALES@HOTMAIL.COM.)
