Cameras will be rolling at the LIC Flea & Food this weekend, as HGTV’s “Flea Market Flip” makes its return to the market.
The show will be filming on both Saturday and Sunday at the popular Long Island City flea market, located at the waterfront lot at the corner of Fifth Street and 46th Avenue.
Each week on “Flea Market Flip,” 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.
Visitors are encouraged to come down to the LIC Flea for a chance to be on TV and pick up some rare finds for their homes.
LIC Flea also offers items from over 80 vendors each day. Items for sale include food and drinks, collectibles, antiques, arts and crafts, handcrafted jewelry and fashion, and much more.
When visitors want to take a break from shopping, they can relax at the LIC Flea Beer Garden, which is the only venue serving all six Queens-brewed beers from local breweries including Big Alice Brewing, Rockaway Brewing Company, Queens Brewery, Finback Brewery, Bridge and Tunnel Brewery, and SingleCut Beersmiths.
LIC Flea & Food runs every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., through the end of October.
