Kobey’s Swap Meet started in 1976 at the old Midway Drive-In Theater. Since then they have undergone many changes and have grown to become the premier Swap Meet in San Diego County. Kobey’s occupies the parking lot at the San Diego Sports Arena with a selling capacity of approximately one thousand vendors. Holding to the belief that diversity is a good thing, Kobey’s offers the Shopper a mixture of new and used items. They do, however, have prohibited merchandise and certain items which must conform to all governmental specifications.

Kobey’s is in operation every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Shopper’s hours are from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Kobey’s Swap Meet draws approximately 30,000 – 40,000 shoppers weekly. Kobey’s Swap Meet attracts more buyers because they are committed to a heavy advertising campaign consisting of television, radio, newspaper, and billboards.

Arrive as early as possible if you want the full experience. Friendly vendors and a myriad of different things for... sale. Prices are always reasonable, and NEVER purchase without at least attempting to haggle. Almost all the vendors will slash the price of an item If you try not to seem too excited about buying it, and ask to spend less.read more

My favorite swap meet! Nice mix of new and used goods with lots of variety. I particularly like the surf brand clothing... booth where brand names sell for $5-15. Also great for sunglasses, produce, and used toys, sporting goods, and housewares. . .and all kinds of stuff beyond that. The vibe is pretty mellow, and parking is usually easy.read more

All the sellers at the swap meet are so courteous and friendly. It started to rain lightly and a seller welcomed me... under her canopy. I bought a tall table and the seller carried it out to my car for me after he called his wife to stay in his sell area. It is just a lot of fun, browsing around and looking at different items.read more

It's. A great place to spend the day you never know what you'll find. But there's no place to sit not even for the... handicap. The snack shack prices are HUGE $$$for their largest glass is $5 for a small almost the size of child's large tumbler not worth it with all the financial problems that's going on right now so I'd bring something and leave it in the car and get the return stamp or just bring water. Enjoy a day out with family or friends.read more

I’ve enjoyed buying and selling at kobeys swap meet since 1987! After the 2008 recession dealers now offer quality... merchandise at well below market value. These are dealers that sell monthly throughout the year to provide wholesale prices to the public. I’ve met many customers that are now my friends for life! I take good care of my friends.read more

Good selection of vendors, best day is Sunday. Best deals are in the afternoon. Plenty of parking all around. Great for... people and dog watching as well, all sorts of characters flock to flea markets. Everything from plants to fruit to flowers is available as well. Following all COVID guidelines. Good shopping experience overall, will likely be returning.read more

You can walk around and try to find random items, or shop for a purpose. There are couple fruit and vegetable stands,... many clothing and accessories (hats, masks, hair clips etc), toys, tools, knifes, collectibles, phone accessories, books, gardening tools, DVDs, succulents, basically everything including kitchen sink (yes, I saw a vendor marketing new bath/kitchen remodelling). Entrance is $2 on weekends, $1 coupon for Saturday can be found on their site (must be printed). If you don't find something to buy that's $2/person wasted, but I guess it helps with the crowd control.read more

You'll never know what you might find here and the people watching is amazing. With a few exceptions*, the prices are... fair to great. Make sure to get the donuts. *There are a few vendors that are there every weekend who have no problem trying unreasonably overcharge you in the hopes that you are clueless.read more

A really fun place to wander. I admit some things are a bit pricey, but that should not stray you away from how... wonderful this flea market really is. There are many items that are one of a kind. This flea market is huge! Honestly, if I had unlimited amounts of cash and a huge house to furnish, I would go crazy here.read more

Hit or miss depending on what you're purchasing. Some folks are flexible with their pricing so you get to enjoy a bit... of "tug-of-war" with the pricing. I wish there were more food vendors there but overall it's a great spot to get some unique items!read more

Good setup. Using every other space, so it covers a lot larger area than before. Fantastic prices on masks/face... coverings due to multiple sellers. Go early to ensure you have enough time to browse and not have too many folks at your elbow. Bring gloves if you're going to pick through the dump table style vendors.read more

****It can be a hit or miss with this location. Watch out for thieves when your unloading you vehicle. The thieves... are quick & quiet. One person should unload while the other watch. They are there EVERY TIME we sell. Now, does this business do anything about the thrives? I've NEVER seen and/or heard of any prosecution? This swap meat can nickel dime you with extras. So make sure you have tables, chairs, etc. I hope this helps you out********read more

A good mix of used and new. Found some new Pyjamas for $5 a piece that normally sell for $45. Lots of bargains and oh... the donuts 👍. Lots of parking. Parking is big enough for RVs. Most vendors only take cash. After spending your money, grab some lunch at either Phil’s BBQ next door or Los Panchitow Mexican around the corner. Have fun shopping 🛍read more
