The Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market took place this past Saturday and by every indication it was, once again, a smashing success. Thousands attended to check out all the unique offerings the vendors were selling at booths set up in long rows. From vintage toys and records, to custom clothing and handmade crafts there was something for everyone. Even those into actual animal skulls could find something here.
We knew this was a popular event and hoped to snag one of the gift bags being offered to the first 200 attendees. When we arrived we knew right away we were not going to be getting one. The line to get in even a half four before the event was well around the corner. People must have been lining up very early. No swag for us.
A DJ was on hand to fill the historic Roebling Machine Shop building with punk and alternative music. Many food trucks were located just outside the building so you didn’t have to venture far to get some good grub from The Taco Truck or The Cinnamon Snail among others.
Organizer Joseph Kuzemka, pictured at top, has to be pleased that the TPRFM has grown so successful. It is a testament to his hard work that such a great event draws so many people to the state capital. Trenton has a lot to offer everyone and this event highlights the creative work going on.
