San Francisco summer returns this weekend with sunshine, 70-degree temperatures, and two outdoor markets you don't want to miss.

First up is the fall installment of Bouquet at Rejuvenation (1717 Fourth Street) in Berkeley on Saturday, September 16. From 11 am–5 pm, shop a curated selection of vintage and handmade apparel, furniture and home goods, jewelry and accessories, bath products and flowers. In addition to Wallflower and Rejuvenation—the driving forces behind the market—vendors include Salty Fox Jewelry, Jenny Lemons, Groove Merchant Records, Anthophile, and Heritage Mercantile. Admission is free, and there will be a food truck, so just accept that you will go and buy all the things.

Urban Air Market will round out the weekend with a return to Hayes Valley on Sunday, September 17 from 11 am to 6 pm, and there a bunch of new vendors joining the market this time. While you're there, be sure to check out the Consistency Project for vintage and recycled apparel, Wanderlust Apothecary for new beauty discoveries, WenWen Designs for sustainable, locally-made jewelry, and Say Something Cards for whimsical, illustrated paper products from San Jose.

I hate to be an alarmist who promotes holiday shopping when you're just starting to order PSLs, but... the holidays aren't that far away and shopping for everyone come November can leave you with a painful end of year credit card statement. All I'm saying is if you wanted to start your holiday shopping while it's still summer, Bouquet and Urban Air Market are the places to do it.
