Lakewood is our most populated town in Ocean County and with this housing project it will continue to grow and expand.

According to the Lakewood News Network, which reached out to me….”the former flea market area is approved in 4 phases for a mixed use development with a total of 166 units, mostly townhomes. Construction is already in full swing for the first 2 phases. Eventually, there will also be 2 office/retail buildings along the Route 70 frontage.”

Do you miss the former flea market? Did you ever shop at this location? Did you ever sell goods at the old Route 70 flea market? The Route 70 flea market in Lakewood was around for about 40 years……beginning in the late 70’s. Thousands passed through the market every year.
