This fall the LIC Flea & Food is back with weekends filled with activities for everyone.

The fall season launches on Saturday, Sept. 14, and Sunday, Sept. 15, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.

Join us for one of a kind vendors, vintage and artisanal goods. Grab a brew from the Beer & Wine Garden and head on over to the Flea’s amazing food vendors.  Returning this fall are crowd favorites Empanada Papa, Muzzles and Chori & Chimi to sell their delicious fare. For a sweet bite, check out Cozi Treats where you’ll find delicious macarons.

When you’re ready to shop, head on over to Neil Levin Pottery for his one-of-a-kind designs and to ILHA Candles for hand-poured scented candles. For Colombian handmade jewelry, Nomada Color Designs has tons of great colorful items to choose from.

The Pumpkin Patch makes its debut this weekend and kids can grab a free pumpkin courtesy of the Flea, while supplies last. You can jump into the patch, take photos and grab your favorite pumpkin to decorate.
