With the warm weather continuing throughout the week, it’s time to get outside and enjoy the summer at the LIC Flea & Food (located at 5-25 46th Ave.). Picture yourself strolling through the market under a blue sky, a few clouds floating by and fresh breeze coming from the East River. You can finish your walk in the beer garden area along the waterfront with a craft beer and a delicious treat from the dozens of food vendors. Sounds a lot better than being stuck inside — AC or not.
At the Flea, there is something for any taste. Seeking to get yourself something cute? How about a gorgeous bracelet from Vivian Jewelry. Try J’enessence for all-natural, handcrafted body products, like their amazing coffee and cinnamon body scrub. Maybe you are just looking for something unique and funny? Than check out The Fishtank Apparel shirts and even golf balls.
For regular visitors, there is always something new to discover. New addition Four the Hard Way will bring authentic Jamaican flavor to the LIC Flea & Food. Think richly flavored jerk chicken, delicious oxtail and tender curry goat. If you are more about shopping than eating, check out Potter Aguero and his handmade impressive pottery for a unique mug or bowl that will stand out in any kitchen.
There are plenty of good reasons to get outside this summer weekend, so get down to Long Island City and enjoy the offerings of the LIC Flea & Food. And for all our wine and sweets lovers, we have something special. With the code LICFLEA, you can get 15 percent off the Wine & Sweets Festival coming up July 22nd and 23.
