October is here and there is a lot to do over at the LIC Flea & Food.
This weekend kicks off Oktoberfest at the popular Long Island City market, which is located at Fifth Street and 46th Avenue and runs every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. through the end of October.
Guests can come and enjoy a pumpkin patch from J&L Farms, sip fall brews from all the Queens breweries offered at the LIC Flea Beer Garden, and enjoy some tunes while chowing down on food from vendors and shopping for unique items.
Breweries offering their selections include Big Alice brewing, Finback Brewery, SingleCut Beer Smiths, Rockaway Beer Company, Queens Brewery, Bridge and Tunnel Brewery, and LIC Beer Project.
On Saturday, HGTV will come by the market once again to film an episode of “Flea Market Flip.” Visitors can meet Lara Spencer, shop one-of-a-kind furniture and have a chance to be on television.
Later that night in a neighborhood right next door, the Astoria Flea & Food Night Market at Kaufman Astoria Studios will hosts its final night offering the best in food, shopping and all-Queens beer garden. The Astoria market runs from 6 to 11 p.m.
