Maybe my expectation were too high. I was expecting something like the Mesa Market in Arizona and was really disenchanted. Quality of merchandise wasn't there. Really just a bad flea market.

We ran into this place by chance and boy, am I glad we did! Local friends later told us it was an institution, having been opened in the 70s. From electronics to cosmetics to tools to antiques to furniture, new stuff, old stuff and more,...More

I recently moved to SD and have never been to a swap meet before so I don't have anything to compare it to. My fiancee and I keep going back, our favorites are the toy vendors and the small plant vendors!

We had visited Kobey's on past trips to San Diego (several years ago) and considered it to be well worth attending.. This time it was very junky, we found no values whatsoever,, and probably won't bother to visit it again in the future.
