    Jersey City Business Spotlight: Pacific Flea Market is Back!

    It’s warming up outside, which means the Pacific Flea Market is back! Located in the Bergen–Lafayette section of Jersey City, the market is an annual go-to spot where shoppers can find handcrafted goods, vintage items, collectibles and street art.

    This year’s market is said to be bigger and better than ever, with new additions like live music, curated art shows and rotating food trucks there won’t be a lack of fun things to do in Jersey City anytime soon.

    "We're really just trying to kick this whole thing up a notch," said Organizer Joel Maffei. "We have a lot of people doing vintage clothing, some people with antiques and knick-knacks plus some really great artists who do upcycled art."

    A few of this year’s Jersey City business vendors include: Heaven and Hand Knits, All for You Vintage, PetuniasJC, Present Tense Vintage, Taproot Organics, EvetteTelyas, E. Tittlemouse & Co., Secondhand Habits Vintage, EGC Studios, the Vintagenista, Turnstyle ART and Lenka's Jewelry.

    Maffei, who's lived in the Jersey City community for eight years, thought back to the early days of The Pacific Flea Market, and said: “The market grew out of property owner Stuart Metrick’s garage sales.  A crafty collector, Metrick takes old, industrial items and repurposes them to create new furniture and also sells records and antiques.”

    He added, "Our main goal is to create a community space, an art space for the neighborhood. We don't really have anything else like this in the Bergen-Lafayette area, and we think it would be really great to get things going over here."

    Check out Pacific Flea Market on the second Saturday of every month through October from 11AM to 6PM. It’s just a short walk from the Liberty State Park stop on the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail and only a few blocks from the 14B exit on the NJ Turnpike.
