Highlights of Rose Bowl Flea Market 

The main highlight of the Rose Bowl Flea Market is simply browsing the aisles filled with childhood memories, Hollywood memorabilia, distinctive clothing, arts and crafts, and everything vintage. The whole market is color-coded, making it easy to identify what section you are in. 

You’ll also be pleased to know that there is a great selection of food and beverages on offer. Because the market opens early, you could enjoy a fresh cinnamon roll with your coffee, and later in the day, pizza and a beer might make shopping all the more rewarding.
