Cameras will be rolling into the LIC Flea & Food this Saturday, so don’t miss out.

HGTV’s “Flea Market Flip” will be filming an episode at the popular Long Island City flea market with host Lara Spencer, co-anchor on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Each week on the show, contestants, who participate in teams, are given $500 to explore items at different flea markets. The participants search for objects they can buy, fix and then “flip” for a higher selling price. By the end of each show, the contestants display their transformations and battle it out to win all the profits earned.

The LIC Flea is open Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is located at the outdoor lot by the western Queens waterfront at the corner of Fifth Street and 46th Avenue.

“Flea Market Flip” was at the Astoria Flea & Food at Kaufman Astoria Studios last weekend.

The Astoria Flea is continuing strong at the outdoor backlot located at 36th Street and 35th Avenue on Sundays, bringing the best of vendors to the Astoria community.

Applications to be a vendor are still being accepted by registering online at www.licflea.com.
