Visiting the Rose Bowl Flea Market has been on my LA bucket list for awhile now. Given that work has been slow, I’ve been trying to check off some things I’ve been wanting to try for awhile.
The Rose Bowl isn’t exactly located in Los Angeles, it’s in Pasadena, a north east suburb. The flea market is held every second Sunday, rain or shine. It costs $8 after 9am for admission (it’s $15-20 earlier) and parking is free, although there is preferred parking for a fee. The vendors usually start packing up about 3pm.
I was frankly overwhelmed by the size of the place, I just kept wandering and somehow ended up back at the beginning after awhile. There were a wide abundance of second-hand clothing and furniture vendors and a small amount of artists. My favorite part was the people watching, there was a wide range of different shoppers to scope out.
