Summer has unofficially bid us adieu, but there is still time to enjoy some outdoor fun in both Long Island City and Astoria.

This Saturday, Sept. 12, visitors from near and far can take a trip to Astoria to celebrate the opening of the Astoria Flea & Food Night Market at Kaufman Astoria Studios, which announced it will be launching its all-Queens Beer and Wine Garden – which visitors have come to love at the LIC Flea & Food.

The night market will be open for three consecutive Saturdays in September including Sept. 12, 19 and 26. from 6 to 11 p.m. and will include the best in food and flea vendors, and live music.

This weekend also marks the start of fall at the popular LIC Flea & Food, located at Fifth Street and 46th Avenue. There are only eight weekends left of the outdoor season so don’t wait to visit the market and meet some of the new vendors, while also enjoying favorites from the 2015 season.

Visitors can enjoy treats such as delicious fries from Bulldog Burgery and Crafty Cue BBQ’s pastrami Ruben. Pick up some fall duds from Dutch Kills Klothing, SM Designs and baubles from Scripted by Design.

Guests can also 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.

LIC Flea & Food runs every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through the end of October.
