Lakewood’s Route 70 Flea Market to Close
For over 40-years, the Lakewood Flea Market on Route 70 was a destination for deals and unique finds. The Township, however, has other plans for the land and soon the flea market will be no more.
The development of real estate on the flea market land has been going around for over 4-years. Approval for construction has been held up for numerous reasons including concern that Lakewood Township's water supply wouldn't support the development.
That has all been worked out now, and soon 166 townhouses with basement apartments, a 12,000-square-foot retail building, and a 10,000-square-foot community building will be sitting on the former flea market land.
According to APP, there are no plans to kick out the more than 600 vendors. However, it's likely the very last steals will happen at the end of December.
