(Santo Tomas Swap Meet)…It could reopen soon.
The Swap Meet has been closed for over 6 months, since a major fire closed it down. It was not allowed to reopen until permit violations were taken care. The City of Calexico took the Swap Meet to court on the violations. The judge suggested the two sides negotiate their differences. The City Council in Calexico has approved a temporary agreement that would allow the Swap Meet to reopen. That agreement is still being finalized.
