City Marketplace flea market plans to close

One year after it opened in the former Cycle Barn building on Highway 99 and 172nd Street SW, City Marketplace flea market is closing its doors.

Vendors have been told the next two weekends will be their last.

Owner Jim Boltz told us they have a potential buyer for the building and the sale will close at the end of the summer.

“However, even if the building was not sold we would close the flea market for the summer,” Boltz added. “From our past experience, most flea market vendors and customers go to outside venues during summer months – farmer’s markets, street fairs, etc. — so we would be closed normally.”

Boltz said if the building does not sell, he will consider reopening City Marketplace in early September. Either way, a closing sale will be held over the next two weekends to sell the remaining products.

  1. Sort of sucks.  Been through there a few times and while I never found any treasures it was a good time.  I know the city of Lynnwood has given them a hard time so I wouldn’t be surprised if they relocated to a more business friendly city.
