Welcome the start of fall at the LIC Flea & Food Market this weekend, Oct. 6-7, and enjoy one-of-a-kind food, beer and vintage vendors.

Grab a great drink from the Beer and Wine Garden and stroll through the market at your leisure. Among the unique vendors this weekend is Wahoo Industries, coming all the way from Virginia with one off furniture created by Jarrett using natural woods and iron.

Gilberto Endozo Designs will also be at the market selling antique vintage items from the 1800s to 1900s. For handmade jewelry and vintage goods, Tracey Renee Designs has tons of great items to choose from also.

After all that shopping, check out some of the incredible food from the market’s many vendors. Back by popular demand, Sands Jerk Hut has an array of Caribbean dishes from mild to spicy!

Made in Beijing is also back with their amazing duck burgers and savory dumplings. For a sweet bite, stop by Baked By Dawn for cookies, brownies, pies and her special Pumpkin Spice Bundt cake with maple glaze.
