The LIC Flea & Food Market is the place to be this Labor Day weekend to enjoy great food, local craft beer and shopping in the outdoors.
Spend your “staycation” sampling delicious Egyptian dishes from vendor American Pharoah, including beef/chicken kebabs, macaroni bechamel and Nefertiti lamb shawarma.
Little Chef Little Kitchen is also bringing their twist on Filipino food, including wonton tacos, pickled vegetables, rice bowls and desserts.
Once you’ve had your fill, head on over to get something sweet from Baked By Dawn and S’morgam. Dawn’s home-made brownies, cookies and pies are full of love and deliciousness. S’morgasm is a creative homemade s’mores company, selling do-it-yourself s’mores kits in a variety of flavor combinations. Market-goers will have the option to mix and match yummy flavors for kits to take home and enjoy, or to consume right on the spot!
For a refreshingly healthy alternative to your typical food options, try Emma’s Juice Box. They offer deliciously creamy smoothies, top notch coffee and beautiful infused lemonades. Their fruits are locally sourced through their partnerships with farms and carefully handpicked to best suit your needs. Everything on Emma’s Juice Box is 100% vegan and non-GMO.
As always, the LIC Flea has plenty of unique vendors selling all kinds of vintage goods and one of kind items you won’t find anywhere else.
Jackie & Julia features cool Vintage & New Designer duds for less. Tots & Totes designs and creates styles for toddler and kids that include shopping tote bags, mommy & me tote bags and more!
