- Due to a generous arrangement with Fry's Electronics, we are moving the April 14, 2018 flea market to the Fry's Electronics Flea Market in Sunnyvale (directions). This new arrangement allows us to keep the flea market financially viable.

- There is another event using the parking lots at De Anza college on September 12, 2015. The other event starts around 10 AM at Memorial Park across Stevens Creek Boulevard. We ask our vendors to clear out as soon as practical after our 12:00 PM closing time to accommodate this other activity.
Friday, January 30, 2015
- Some additional cost increases for 2015 force us to adopt a small price increase ($.25 / item) at the food and beverage concession stand.
Monday, May 7, 2014
- Due to increasing costs, we have decided to increase our fee to $25 per vendor space. A vendor space is two consecutive parallel parking spaces marked with the same number. We have a few spaces that are three parking spaces, which are going to be priced at $45. Please correct change to speed your entry into the flea market.
Monday, March 12, 2014
- The Red Cross (Silicon Valley Chapter) has decided no longer participate in the Electronics Flea Market and has been removed from the 2014 schedule. This hole in the schedule has been filled by moving the scheduled groups one month earlier than originally planned. New Schedule

Monday, August 27, 2012
- Unfortunately, Pacificon has been scheduled for the same weekend as the October Electronics Flea Market. We expect many of our buyers and some of our vendors to be at Pacificon and might not be at our flea market. In light of this, the West Valley Amateur Radio Association has decided to cancel our October flea market. September 8th will be the last flea market for 2012. Please spread the word that the September Electronics Flea Market is the last one for 2012. The next market after that is scheduled for March 9, 2013.
Saturday, April 11, 2012
- Due to conflicts with the Farmers Market in lot A and other events on campus we’ve moved the Electronics Flea Market to lot B. Lot B is under the solar panels near the lot C parking garage. Good news is the panels provide light in the early hours and some shade during the hotter months.
Saturday, February 17, 2012
- We have confirmed that the flea market is going to be in lot A this year. No more messing around with lot B and its solar panels.
Saturday, February 4, 2012
- We are preparing for the 2012 Electronics Flea Market season. The Silicon Valley Red Cross is our first sponsor this year. Note that on campus parking fees have increased to $3. Bring clean $1 bills to feed the daily parking permit machines.
Saturday, October 1, 2011
- The October 8th flea market is moving down to parking lot B. This is the parking lot just south of usual location, so you should not have any trouble finding it.
Thursday, September 8, 2011
- The September 10th flea market has been canceled because of construction on the De Anza college campus. We only received the notice this afternoon, so we have scrambled to get the word out.
Friday, August 12, 2011
- Note to buyers/sellers that there is construction occurring in parking lots A & B on the college campus. This is not affecting the flea market itself, but buyers may need to park in different locations on campus since space in Lots A & B is limited.
We are doing our best to mitigate the problem with signage, staff to direct buyers to parking, and requesting permission to use parking space not normally available for buyers to use (e.g “staff” parking and “30 Minute Visitor” parking).

- Added another E-Waste recycler to the recycle page.
Wednesday, April 9, 2008
- To better manage the cardboard problem, cardboard shall be collected at a single location to keep it out of the trash and to ease disposal.
Wednesday, March 13, 2008
- De Anza College is complaining about E-Waste being left in the trash. Please do not put electronic waste into the trash. It damages our relationship with De Anza and violates California law. Also, there is far too much cardboard being dumped at the market. No more cardboard boxes are to be dumped in the trash.
Wednesday, March 6, 2008
- First flea market scheduled for this Saturday, March 28, 2008. Coffee and doughnut prices are going to $1.

Wednesday, May 9, 2007
- Another recycler added to the recycle page.
Wednesday, April 18, 2007
- We have received reports of counterfeit USB flash (thumb) drives being sold at the April flea market. The counterfeit drives look legitimate and even report as high-capacity drives (1, 2, 4, 8GB), when connected to a PC, but they actually have 1/2 or 1/4 of the stated capacity.
Make sure you know what you’re buying and who is selling it to you. Remember the adage that if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is.
More details about counterfeit/fake USB flash drives being sold on eBay.
