Children will rule at the LIC Flea & Food this weekend as the market celebrates with kid-centric activities on Saturday and Sunday.
The popular Long Island City flea market, located at the waterfront lot at the corner of Fifth Street and 46th Avenue, will hold “Kids Day” this weekend featuring a bounce house and kid-centric vendors and games.
Children who visit the LIC Flea this weekend will also have the chance to meet a surprise snow princess, provided by Glitz Entertainment, who will be at the market from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.
Joining the fun, HGTV’s “Flea Market Flip” will return to the LIC Flea this Saturday to film an episode.
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.
