About the Trenton Rock Flea Market (from their website):

photo 1(3)

The Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market is a punk rock-inspired flea market that takes  place three times per year. We include vendors selling everything from vintage clothing, original artwork, antiques, silkscreened posters and handmade jewelry to handmade t-shirts, vintage toys, vinyl (of course) and numerous other interesting curiosities and unique collectibles.

photo 2(3)The TPRFM hosted our first event in January 2013 and welcomed just over 50 vendors and 2,000 attendees in a small urban art gallery. Fast forward to November of that same year and we hosted more than 200 vendors from around the tri-state area (NJ, NYC, PA, DE, MD), gourmet food trucks, live graffiti murals, a live DJ and more than 4,500 people as we rocked the Historic Roebling Machine Shop building (once the factory that created the wire rope for, as well as designed, the Brooklyn Bridge).

We embrace 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. We hope you’ll join us at the next Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market!

Grape Adventure – This Weekend Nov 8th & 9th, 2014 at Great Adventure


For the last 5 years, my husband and I attend Grape Adventure, which is held at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson. You pay a flat rate (prices vary depending on if you’re a Season ticket holder) and get to sample as many wines before you pass out. The event is free to attend if you do not plan on drinking, and kids are allowed. There are vendors in attendance (I bought a nifty wine glass holder lanyard last year) as well as food vendors. This year there are a few food trucks in attendance which is pretty cool. The park is not open, so you can’t get drunk and ride a roller coaster, however they do have the safari open for those who purchase the Wine Event and Safari ticket. There are a few wines that are strictly for the safari, so it’s worth checking out.

I highly recommend it. I stock up on wine for the year since all the vineyards are in one convenient location.
