LIC Flea

I was so excited when I heard that the Flea was making its way to my borough. Go Queens! I am a big fan of the Brooklyn Flea, and was eager to check out Long Island City's version this summer.

I met up with Natalie, from The SoHo, to explore the flea and grab some lunch last weekend. Despite the rainy weather, we had a great time catching up over our favorite market meals. Natalie enjoyed a lobster roll from Luke's Lobster and I loved my tacos from Oaxaco Taqueria. I was impressed with all of the food vendors and have been craving my watermelon mint lemonade ever since I left!

Some of the perks of the new LIC Flea:
  • There is a free shuttle bus that picks up from 30th Avenue and 31st Street every Saturday and Sunday at 11 am and 1 pm. You can sign up for free shuttle service here. The shuttle arrived right on time and made my commute to the Flea a breeze! 
  • If you follow LIC Flea on Facebook you can find out about upcoming free events. The weekend I attended there was free kayaking in Anable Basin, which looked really fun. 
  • The Flea is located one block away from the iconic Pepsi sign and the beautiful Gantry Plaza State Park. The views of Manhattan are breathtaking! 
I am looking forward to going back to the Flea in less rainy weather, and am hoping that even more vendors set up in the sunshine!

  1. Looks like fun! One of my girlfriends just moved to LIC from Manhattan (she still can't get over the fact that she won't be a Manhattanite for a year) and I'm wondering if she knows about this! Mmm, donuts.
