As you celebrate the fathers in your life this weekend, make sure to stop by the LIC Flea & Food to get them some delicious and one-of-a-kind treats, along with a cold cup of what the borough has to offer.
The popular Long Island City flea market, located at the outdoor lot by the waterfront at the corner of Fifth Street and 46th Avenue, is the perfect spot to do some Father’s Day shopping and enjoy some time with dad.
Some items that could make great gifts include hearty eats from vendors such as Hanks Juicy Beef and Butcher Bar, seafood from Afishonado, and Asian cuisine by The Bao Shoppe, Oconomi, Rice & Chopsticks and more. You can also shop for dad at Dutch Kills Klothing, Queens Pop Photo, Lady V Second Time Around and many other vendors.
Also, the LIC Flea Beer Garden, which exclusively serves beers brewed in Queens from local breweries, will give all fathers a free beer on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 5 to 6 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 1 p.m. and 5 to 6 p.m.
This weekend the market is also launching the LIC Flea Breakfast Café, located at the Beer Garden and open Saturdays from 10 to 11 a.m. and Sundays from 10 a.m. to noon.
