Are you sticking around the city for the Memorial Day weekend? Spend part of it enjoying all of the wonderful food and vendors that the LIC Flea & Food market has to offer!

LIC Flea & Food is the perfect staycation for Memorial Day weekend. Forget working the barbecue this weekend and instead enjoy hot-off-the-grill eats and other amazing international food. Check out Rib in a Cup’s mac ‘n’ cheese waffles with rib tips, Jamaican Jerk grill from Tropical Jerk or Choklos’ Peruvian mixed grill with fresh corn. If you want to go meatless, grab a grilled quesadilla from What’s the Dillaz.

Every day but especially this weekend, LIC Flea is honoring our military heroes who have given their lives for our freedom. We are giving a special shoutout to our vendors who are veterans like Artist Unlimited, Angel Ink and Arnold & Arnold Handcrafted.

Bring your hero to LIC Flea & Food this weekend, take a photo and tag #licflea for a chance to win flea bucks!
The LIC Flea and Food market is conveniently located on the waterfront at 5-25 46th Ave., a short walk from the Court Square-23rd St station.
