Fall is finally here and although the summer sun has gone away, there is still time to enjoy some outdoor fun both in Long Island City and Astoria.
This weekend marks the last weekend to grab a drink during the LIC Flea Beerfest where you can enjoy Queens brewed beers for $2 from noon to 2 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
Breweries offering their selections include Big Alice brewing, Finback Brewery, SingleCut Beer Smiths, Rockaway Beer Company, Queens Brewery, Bridge and Tunnel Brewery, and LIC Beer Project.
HGTV’s “Flea Market Flip” will also return to the popular Long Island City market this weekend so visitors have the chance to stop by, shop one-of-a-kind refurbished furniture, get a chance to be on television and meet host Lara Spencer.
LIC Flea & Food is located at Fifth Street and 46th Avenue and runs every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through the end of October.
Just a neighborhood over, people can also check out the Astoria Flea & Food Night Market at Kaufman Astoria Studios. After a successful opening night last weekend, the market is back this Saturday night and offers great food, vintage finds, jewelry and much more.
Guests can also enjoy drinks at the all-Queens beer garden, which found its popularity at the LIC Flea & Food.
The Astoria Flea & Food Night Market will run Sept. 26 and Oct. 3 from 6 to 11 p.m.
Live music at both the Astoria and LIC markets are sponsored by car2go, who also have booths at both locations where guests can learn more about their services. Information can also be found here. The Inebriators will perform at the Astoria Flea this weekend.
