The Summer edition of Asbury Park Punk Rock Flea Market organized by Holdfast Records kicked off on June 4. This was the first edition of the year with two more in the back half of the year. With over 120+ vendors, one can find anything from records, toys, handmade crafts, photographs, and more. Maybe some Ecto Cooler and Rocketeer memorabilia, just saying. While upstairs, live music was being performed. I arrived late and missed TV Tramps and most of Smalltalk’s set, but caught The West Kensingtons’ and a little of The Fuss. I had another show to photograph at night. The Asbury Park Punk Flea Market is a great way to spend a day in Asbury Park. Supporting small businesses, seeing live music, eating great food, and walking along the boardwalk.
