Bouquet Market is the embodiment of a flea market with the curation of a local makers' market. Think curated, epic vintage shopping and locally handmade apparel, jewelry, home goods, accessories and art for all budgets.
Wallflower launched Bouquet Market in 2017 together with Fourth Street Shops and Rejuvenation to bring together our community and support our local artisans, boutiques, makers and brands.
This year we are joining forces with HEAD WEST and bringing together the best local makers and vintage sellers in the Bay Area for three seasonal markets on Fourth Street in Berkeley!
Yes, Bouquet Market is becoming HEAD WEST, and our goal is to make this a seamless transition for shoppers and vendors alike, while still maintaining a super special market vibe, and of course growing and curating our community of sustainable, local sellers + makers.

Previously regarded as one of San Francisco’s best vintage boutiques, Wallflower features a curated collection of vintage clothing, with emphasis on dreamy 60s and 70s bohemian goddess style. From epic jumpsuits and colorful kaftans to the perfect pair of 70s denim, Wallflower is a place where dreams come true. They are obsessed with the perfect prints, patterns, fits, and colors and endlessly inspired by the evolution of style through time. Wallflower said adieu to their SF Mission District boutique for sunnier skies and warm weather in Los Angeles.
ABOUT FOURTH STREET BERKELEY
In 1976, Abrams/Millikan & Kent, a small design/build firm specializing in hand crafted houses and offices proposed a concept of a Building Design Center - conceived as a place catering to the home owner, presented by a guild of businesses specializing in furniture, stained glass, solar power, hot tubs, lighting, textiles and interior design. Along with the craft shops and showrooms, AMK built the Fourth Street Grill, which soon became famous throughout the country for Mark Miller's great cuisine. Thus, by 1981 a shopping neighborhood, with a regional clientele, was born. Now with over 65+ shops, cafes and restaurants, it's known as one of Berkeley's premier shopping destinations.
