Rose Bowl Flea Market
For nearly 40 years, Angelinos have adored this massive flea. More than 2,500 vendors set up before dawn, and it’s a good idea to come super early (before sunrise), if only to allow enough time to peruse the estimated five miles of booths. Look up occasionally from the tables of mid-century collectibles and the racks of vintage clothes, and you just might see Ashley Olson or Clint Eastwood shopping along with you—both have been known to enjoy treasure hunting here.
Hours: Second Sunday of every month.
Tune in on Wednesdays at 10PM ET for Top Chef: Boston, the 12th season of Bravo's Emmy-Award winning, hit reality series.
