The last location for the Electronics Flea Market was the Sunnyvale Public Library in Sunnyvale, CA.
The Electronics Flea Market “swap meet” is normally held on the second Saturday (7:00am - 12:00pm) of each month, March through September (schedule) (flyer [PDF]). The flea market is organized by ASVARO for the benefit of non-profit amateur radio organizations in the Silicon Valley.
Buyers enter the market for free and parking in the area is generally free for the event. Be sure to only park in properly marked parking spaces, observing “no parking” zones, handicapped parking spaces, and keep clear of walkways and traffic lanes. Use of handicapped spaces require a permit. Watch out for pedestrians.
The organizations that participate in the flea markets are active in amateur radio education, emergency communications, and civic support activities. If you would like to receive a reminder of each month's flea market and other news about the market, sign up on our email list.
The Electronics Flea Market is held on the second Saturday of the month and focuses on electronics and amateur radio gear. Sellers pay upon entry on a first-come first-serve basis. More details are below.
Flea markets are held rain or shine. Rain during the flea market season is typically intermittent and we still receive significant attendance.
The market opens around 7:00am and closes at 12:00 Noon. Sellers should pack up and leave the property by 1:00PM.
This is a 1-space spot (a single parking space) to place your goods. If you park your vehicle in the space, it must fit completely within the space. You may park your vehicle outside the vendor area for no additional fee.
This is a 2-space spot (2 consecutive, adjacent parking spaces) to place your goods. If you park your vehicle in this space, it must fit completely within the space. You may park your vehicle outside the vendor area for no additional fee.
You may lease any combination of 1-space ($30) and 2-space ($50) spots if you need more room.
California law prohibits dumping of electronics and batteries into the trash. Flea market sellers are expected to leave their areas clean when they depart. Take your unwanted electronics to a recycling center for proper disposal.
Please properly dispose of trash and recyclable items. There are trash cans on the property for ordinary trash. California law prohibits the dumping of electronics including computer monitors and television sets into the trash (they contain large quantities of toxic lead). Violators will be ejected from the market and banned from future flea markets. You can find out more about recycling on our Recycle page.
Consider taking your electronic recyclables to a recycling center.
ASVARO is a California non-profit public benefit educational corporation (501(c)(3)). The Electronics Flea Market is operated for the benefit of non-profit organizations in the Silicon Valley. All net proceeds from the market are used by these organizations to carry out their non-profit activities.
This swap meet has been a staple of Silicon Valley Amateur Radio since the 1970's.
