Kobey's Swap Meet
Kobey's was founded by Monte Kobey in 1976 at the old Midway Drive-in theater, where the Soup Plantation later opened. In August 1980, the Swap Meet moved to the parking lot of the San Diego Sports Arena, later known as Pechanga Arena. After starting with around a dozen sellers, the Swap Meet expanded to over 250, and eventually topping 1000 vendors every Friday , Saturday, and Sunday.
Vendors specialize in everything from produce and flowers to electronics, antiques, dollar items, and vintage clothing.
