Along with shopping, eating and relaxing on the Long Island City waterfront, you can also get your 15 minutes of fame this Saturday at LIC Flea & Food.

Turning old and discarded items into new treasures is the fun of HGTV’s Emmy Award winning show Flea Market Flip, and the show will once again film an episode on May 6 at the Flea.

Contestants will turn items ready for the junkyard into treasures that visitors at LIC Flea will love to bring home.

The fun starts as visitors negotiate prices on their favorite pieces and the contestants compete to sell all their items first. Host Lara Spencer joins the fun and crowns the winner right on the spot.

LIC Flea & Food is open every Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Visitors will find global food from entrepreneurial chefs, handcrafted, vintage and curated items along with the only All-Queens Beer Garden.

The market is located at 5-26 46th Ave., a short walk from the Court Square station and nearby ferry stops. Click here for more details.

bulldog fries

Bulldog Burgery has travelled the country serving their amazing burgers and fries at large music festivals, including Coachella and Bonnaroo among others. Queens however, has always been home base for these guys. They are proud to bring their Belgian Style Fry concept to LIC Flea for a third straight year.

Served in an easy to handle cone, they offer these fresh cut fries with a rotating selection of house-made sauces including the ever popular Roasted Garlic, Pesto, and “The Sauce,” a chipotle mayo secret blend. Stay tuned through the summer as they introduce new flavors, including a California Crab Fry they’ve been working on for 2017.
