West Coast Wednesdays
The San Jose Flea Market, or better know as La Pulga de San Jose by the Mexican community has always been one of my favorite places in the world. This is the literal melting pot of the Bay Area's cultures and ethnicities, you have the Mexican and Central American communities, the Vietnamese, Filipino, Chinese, and Korean, as well as the Middle Eastern folk. If your family was always on a budget this is where you'd hang out on Sundays. You'll find fruits and vegetables, toys, furniture, clothes, home decor, used goods, as well as counterfeit merchandise. Sadly like most of the Bay Area, greed creeps in and the property has slowly been sold off to housing developers as well as to the city for a new public transportation station.
