As it makes its way into its second month of success, LIC Flea & Food continues to create unforgettable weekends for residents and visitors – and recently received great recognition in the city.

On August 7, Metro newspaper named three of their favorite markets in New York that combine food with shopping for clothing, accessories and much more. Metro chose LIC Flea as its favorite market in New York City.

“I’m thrilled that the market was recognized by Metro,” said Joshua Schneps, LIC Flea & Food president. “LIC Flea & Food has the absolute best vendors and they are what makes the market so fantastic. Long Island City is an amazing community and the market is in the heart of the neighborhood.”

Metro highlighted LIC Flea’s large range of different foods, representing the diversity of the borough, weekend DJs, and variety of hand-made jewelry, clothing, accessories, home décor and art from local artists.

“LIC Flea is a great destination to enjoy and take the family,” said Schneps. “The market has anything you want from food to antiques to furniture, jewelry, fashion and many things for you to discover.”
