Long Island City will be extra sweet this weekend.
The LIC Flea & Food, located at Fifth Street and 46th Avenue, will host a Sweets Festival this Saturday and Sunday where visitors will have the chance to vote for their favorite sweets vendors.
Sweet treats from vendors at the market include macaron gelato sandwiches from Woops!, refreshing ices from Rita’s Ices, incredible brownies from Cassey’s Cookies & Cobblers, fried ice cream covered in frosted flakes from Sam’s Fried Ice Cream and much more.
During the festival, Mike J. Chau, of @FoodBabyNY, will select the winners for the best of the best. Winners will receive a trophy and bragging rights.
After satisfying their sweet tooth, visitors can cool off at the LIC Flea Beer Garden – the only venue exclusively serving beers brewed in Queens from local breweries including Rockaway Brewery, Queens Brewery, Finback and SingleCut.
This weekend the market will welcome back by popular demand The Inebriators with their fun and unique mix of jazz, funk and reggae. On Sunday, DJ Johnny Seriuss will be spinning tunes.
LIC Flea would also like to thank Green Street Solar Power for sponsoring The Secret Theatre’s Aug. 16 performance of “Pirate Pete’s Parrot” for the market’s Kids Festival.
LIC Flea & Food runs every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through the end of October.
