Something is ready to pop up in Astoria this summer.
The organizers of the Astoria Flea & Food at Kaufman Astoria Studios, which launched last year as the city’s first-ever backlot market, have announced that the market is expected to make its grand return.
The Astoria Flea, a partnership between the LIC Flea & Food and Kaufman Astoria Studios, will operate from the studios’ outdoor lot, the first off its kind in the city.
This year, instead of running for a consecutive number of weeks, the Astoria Flea will be popping up at the studios’ lot on different dates.
Upon arrival at the Astoria Flea entrance at 36th Street and 35th Avenue, visitors will be welcomed by a 40-foot-high steel gate, designed by David Rockwell and the Rockwell Group.
Visitors of all ages and from all over the city will be able to enjoy the best in food vendors, antiques, collectibles, arts, crafts, fashion and much more.
