Coming Up: Treasure Island Flea

Check out the Treasure Island Flea Market this weekend! They keep adding more fun to the mix. This weekend's theme is Dog Days, with a dozen vendors selling pet things, plus a doggie bar crawl. Pick up a map of which vendors are giving away dog treats. Meet Rodney Martinez in his Mobile Pet Boutique. He was featured on Rachael Ray, when he was a 13 year old entrepreneur. 

Other family fun includes a bounce house, face painting, ponies and scavenger hunts. There's a farmer's market, with at least 15 local farm stand vendors. They also now have Maker's Square, with classes like "make your own terrariums" or "how to waterproof your jeans." If you like DIY classes, come for these! Some are free, and those that cost are affordable.

In addition to the 400 vendors, you'll find more than 30 food trucks, live music, drinks (cocktails, wine and beer) and a great city view. 

When: last weekend of each month - August 30-31 - from 10-4
Where: Treasure Island
Cost: $3/person for those 13 and older. Free for 12 and under.

Other: free parking and pet-friendly
