It’ll be your last opportunity of the year to snag some flea market finds with the Asbury Park Punk Rock Flea Market on Saturday, December 28.
The APPRFM returns with its Holiday Hangover Edition on Saturday December 28th. 125 curated vendors and a live music showcase highlight the event.
The market takes place on the main floor of historic Convention Hall, with many unique and original vendors. Up a set of well worn marble steps is the Overlook, where more cool stuff happens. Local bands will showcase throughout the day, and raffles to shows at the Stone Pony and Wonder Bar are drawn every hour. There is a fully stocked bar with vintage furniture for taking a time out, all in sight of the Atlantic Ocean.
Location: The Asbury Park Punk Rock Flea Market is located in Convention Hall, on the mile long boardwalk. Directions? Drive east until you hit water!! The physical address is 1300 Ocean Avenue in Asbury Park. There is plenty of paid street parking and paid lots in the area. We are also easily accessible by train and bus – the NJ Transit stop is a few minutes walk from the Flea Market and has direct service to/from New York City. And if none of that appeals to you, we have partnered with Lyft. Download their app, use the code APPR, and get a $15 credit on your ride. How sweet is that??
Kids and pups: Kids under 10 are admitted free, and there is plenty for them to do. Wandering the aisles of unique merchandise is entertaining, and we even have a young one who brings his own milk crate, so he can stand on it to easily peruse the record collections!! In addition, there are bands upstairs, and the kids love to rock out!! However, we are not sitters, and you are responsible and must remain with your child at all times. As for our four legged (and other non-human) friends, we love them, but the building does not permit them in the venue. I know, everyone walks their dog thru the Arcade, but they are not allowed in the Hall. Of course, certified assist animals wearing their credentials are welcome.
Other Activities: We know the Punk Rock Flea Market is an awesome destination in and of itself, but there are other things to check out. Don’t worry we have you covered. We give you a wristband that allows you come and go as you please, so you can enjoy the acclaimed restaurants, unique shopping, specialty cocktail lounges, art galleries, pinball hall, and general people watching on the mile long boardwalk. And let’s not forget the world famous live music scene, with over 10 venues regularly hosting live music. Plus, we have the beach and ocean right outside our door.
The Asbury Park Punk Rock Flea Market will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. over by Asbury Park Convention Hall on 1300 Ocean Avenue in Asbury Park, NJ.
