If you’re looking for a way to make Mother’s Day extra special for your mom, take her to the LIC Flea & Food market this weekend!

Bring Mom or Grandma with you to the Flea to enjoy some quality time on the waterfront overlooking the Manhattan skyline. You can indulge in delicious global eats and shop for something special at the market’s many artisanal and vintage vendors.

For the mom who loves travel or just loves the world, Ramblemonde offers up treasures found across the globe. For the mom who loves the spa, stop at J’enessence and pick up some body creams and a bath bomb for mom to relax in the comfort of her own home.


Is your mom stressed? Jump onto the Calm City Meditation bus for a guided meditation that will calm her from the inside out.

What mom doesn’t love shiny gems? Vivian Jewelry has an array of beautiful and feminine bracelets, earrings and necklaces that would make any mom’s heart sing.
