About The Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market.
The Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market takes place three times per year at the historic Roebling Wire Works building in Trenton, New Jersey. Our team embraces a life-long love of punk rock and hardcore, DIY ethics, the arts, tattoos, copious amounts of coffee, the occasional shot of Jameson and a solid, well-styled quiff. The mission of founder Joseph Kuzemka was to create a flea market experience in his hometown that is unlike any other, bringing together vendors that touch upon the aforementioned themes while adding the component of gourmet food truck cuisine in a safe, family-friendly shopping environment. Our market is a curated collection of more than 200 vendors from eight states that sell everything from vintage clothing, original artwork, antiques, handmade jewelry, t-shirts, vintage toys, vinyl, bone jewelry, taxidermy, as well as every other sort of interesting curiosity or unique collectible imaginable.
We held our first event in 2013 with just over 50 vendors and two food trucks, and have now grown into our larger home, just down the street, with the addition of a dozen food trucks, special attractions, celebrity appearances, our legendary Black Swag Bags, and much, much more! The Huffington Post named us one of the Best Flea Markets in America in 2014, and that is due in large part to the truly symbiotic relationship that exists between us and our vendors. This talented tally of creative folks are our life’s blood, and we pride ourselves in providing a low-cost, first-class retail platform for local artisans and makers that allows them to bring high-quality goods direct to a large customer base. There are countless other punk rock flea markets, but we’d like to think that our unbelievably hardworking and dedicated team puts on the one of the best shows of this kind in the entire world.
Make your way down to New Jersey’s Capital City, and come see what the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market is all about!
