Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market: New Jersey Celebrates Art

Nothing screams “college budget” quite like a punk rock flea market. And nothing screams “punk rock” quite like New Jersey.

This past weekend the region’s most dedicated punk rockers fled to our state’s capital for the annual Punk Rock Flea Market. The event was made up of hundreds of extremely talented and unique vendors. From candle-making and hair styling to photography and painting, all elements of our local art scene were celebrated.

This event was RAD.

I got to do two of my favorite things: Get to know people in our local music scene and collect cool information to share with YOU! Click below to hear what some local vendors and attendees had to say about the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market and what NJ’s punk rock scene means to them.

Here are some photos of the speakers you heard above:

Sidenote: The Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market was tons of fun, but if you missed it, don’t worry! In the audio clip, you may have heard something about “Art All Night”. This is an upcoming event that  will also take place at the Roebling Wire Works in Trenton, from June 18th to 19th. Click here to learn all about it.
