Flea markets began in medieval England, where merchants would sell their wares directly to townspeople in search of new wheelbarrows or old VHS cassettes. Uncover hidden gems with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get an indoor pop-up package for two (a $40 value) at Treasure Island Flea, valid on January 28 or 29, February 25 or 26, or March 24 or 25. The pop-up package for two includes:

  • Admission for two (a $3 value each)
  • Two Chef’s Choice dishes (a $7 value each)
  • Two glasses of Ask Alice wine (a $5 value each)
  • Wine tasting voucher for two (a $5 value each)<p>

Groupon buyers also receive two $5 merchandise vouchers and two $2 wine vouchers.

Located inside the only useable building remaining from the 1939 San Francisco World’s Fair, Treasure Island Flea busies shoppers with a miscellany of constantly changing goods, such as handmade bags, recycled furniture, and pinball machines. The modern-day bazaar opens out before twosomes, where a sea of local exhibitors vie for attention with a host of hand-made baubles, jewelry, antiques, and vintage electronics. In between browsing, duos can refuel with a chef’s choice dish from one of the rotating specialty food purveyors and strike terror into the hearts of nearby grapes with two glasses of Ask Alice rose wine, bottled by The Winery SF. To extend the oenophilic excursion, The Winery SF will host a tasting where guests can sample four varietals from a wine flight while absorbing scenic views from the surrounding bay. Patrons can apply the $2 voucher toward any bottle, setting the scene for a romantic night in or a successful gravy-boat christening.

Treasure Island Flea

In an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle, co-owner Angie Ansanelli called Treasure Island Flea "an upscale urban marketplace,” adding, “We curate all the vendors." She and her husband Charles devoted two years to scouring the region for unique merchants, including dealers of vintage goods and antiques, local wineries, and gourmet food trucks. It was the natural culmination of a 25-year marriage and business partnership spent manning a string of entertainment and retail shops on Pier 39.

Those early businesses gave way to a line of patriotic sportswear just in time for the 1994 Olympics, an endeavor that ultimately inspired Treasure Island Flea: the pair wanted to market their new duds at an open-air market, but, unable to find one or lift the roof off one of their existing shops, they created their own. Today, Treasure Island Flea harbors finds such as furniture crafted from recycled ship wood, hand-stitched bags, and pinball machines. Breaks in shopping and eating are filled with live music, scavenger hunts, and do-it-yourself workshops.
