The first weekend in August is upon us and LIC Flea & Food is just getting started with the second half of the season.
New vendors join the market every weekend to offer the very best in food and shopping. Don’t miss the LIC Flea Beer & Wine Garden, where you will find local craft beer every Saturday and Sunday.
August may be hot but LIC Flea has the perfect new addition to keep you cool and amaze all your senses. Cryo Cream is not to be missed. Step up to their booth and watch as they create ice cream in front of your very eyes. Be amazed as they add things like Pop Rocks, toasted marshmallows or a tube filled with chocolate for a special infusion. If that’s not enough, watch as it smokes in your hands!
Mom will be mad if you only fill your belly with ice cream, so be sure to grab something like a cheesy quesadilla from What’s the Dillaz. They are made to order and simply delicious.
Looking for a healthy option? We got you covered with Acai Brazil. Enjoy a bowl filled with superfoods and packed with flavor then head over to Seven Granola and select from their globally inspired mixes. It’s granola like you’ve never experienced.
Now that you’ve satisfied your hunger, it’s time to shop till you drop. Check out the vintage goodies at Hour Children Shops and JnJ Collectibles. Looking for something made in Queens? How about jewels from De Pana Madre or pottery from Potter Aguero? Handmade, unique and stunning!
LIC Flea & Food is open every Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. at 5-25 46th Avenue, at the corner of 5th Street and 46th Avenue, in Long Island City. For more information and to learn about the monthly special events, visit www.LICFlea.com.
