2015-WEBFINAL-Alamo-Square-Flea-Market

Save the Date!  Sunday, September 13, 2015

The annual Alamo Square Flea Market will be held on Sunday, September 13, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in conjunction with Sunday Streets! We are looking for volunteers to help us staff the event.  If you are interested, email us at volunteers@alamosq.org and let us know you want to help at the Flea Market!

Vendors:  Spaces will be sold along the Sunday Streets route on Fulton Street ($70), where the street will be closed, though there is a flat incline — no canopies are allowed.  We will sell spaces along Scott Street ($100), our flattest space, only along the sidewalk adjacent to the park.  We will also sell spaces along Hayes Street ($40), which has the steepest incline.

Due to the number of applications we receive, we may not be able to accept all vendors.

View the Vendor form here.  If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please contact fleamarket@alamosq.org. Email donations@alamosq.org to contribute to this year’s Donation Booth.

The Victorian Alliance of San Francisco has selected the Alamo Square neighborhood for its 43rd Annual House Tour.  Drawing upon Joe Pecora’s seminal book, “The Storied Houses of Alamo Square,” splendid interiors of eight exceptional residences and a landmarked church will be open to guests on a self-guided walking tour.

Prices for the tour range from $40 to $55.  Discounts are available for Victorian Alliance members, groups of 10 or more, and for purchases made before October 10.

Mail order ticket instructions and online ticket sales can be found on www.VictorianAlliance.org, where you may subscribe for future announcements.  Alliance members also will be selling tickets at the Alamo Square Flea Market on Sunday, Sept. 13, Fulton and Scott streets, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
