Yet another outdoor market is planned for Long Island City.
This one, to be located on the corner of 5th Street & 46th Ave., is a flea market and it is expected to open in June.
The market will be comprised of a unique mix of vendors who sell food, antiques, collectibles, arts, crafts and furniture.
The market, officially called LIC Flea & Food, will be open every Saturday and Sunday.
This market will be one of three markets that may open in Hunters Point this year.
GrowNYC is likely to open a greenmarket on the corner of 48th Avenue and Vernon Blvd this July. It plans to be open on Saturdays.
Meanwhile, Down to Earth Farmers, which operates about 20 farmers markets around New York City, plans to open a market on 48th Avenue–between Vernon Blvd and 5th Street– on Saturdays starting mid May.
