The Astoria Flea & Food at Kaufman Astoria Studios is back and with a new twist.
The popular market, which received immense positive feedback when it first launched last May, will open once again for a night market on Sept. 12, 19 and 26 from 6 to 11 p.m.
The Astoria Flea & Food Night Market, a partnership between LIC Flea & Food — Queens’ largest outdoor market — and Kaufman Astoria Studios, will operate on the studios’ outdoor lot, the first of its kind in the city.
Visitors will be able to enter the lot from 36th Street either from 34th Avenue or through the grand entrance on 35th Avenue featuring a 40-foot-high steel gate, designed by David Rockwell and the Rockwell Group.
“I’m thrilled to partner with Kaufman Astoria Studios and open their outdoor movie lot to the general public. It will be a fun and family-friendly destination to enjoy the remaining evenings of summer,” said Joshua Schneps, LIC Flea & Food president. “Our first-class flea vendors offer the opportunity to discover unique items to buy and our food vendors serve up delicious eats you can’t find anywhere else.”
Kaufman Astoria Studios is currently the home of hit series such as “Orange is the New Black,” “Nurse Jackie,” “Alpha House” and “Sesame Street.”
The Astoria Flea & Food Night Market at Kaufman Astoria Studios, which is in walking distance from the M, R, N and Q trains, will offer visitors the best from the LIC Flea & Food and will also feature new vendors selling exclusively at the night market.
Items for sale include everything from food, antiques, collectibles, arts and crafts, fashion and more.
