As the warm weather returns, so too will Long Island City’s outdoor market.
The LIC Flea and Food Market will celebrate its season opening this weekend at 5-25 46th Avenue, complete with more than 80 local food vendors and artisans, as well as a beer and wine garden.
The outdoor market will be open on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., with food ranging from Thai to Mexican to locally made pickles, along with various clothing, jewelry and antique vendors.
Following its opening this weekend, the market will operate every weekend rain or shine, and will also host various events throughout the summer such as a beer and taco festival in June and its second annual beer festival in October, among others.

Can’t tell you how psyched I was to see Oaxaca Taqueria today. Got 2 pork tacos for $10. Absolutely terrible. What is with the gyro style tacos? All fat, no meat. $10 for 2 tacos. Low overhead should mean they should be at least as good as the ones in their stores and definitely not more expensive. In the brick and mortar you get $4 tacos that are much better. They don’t even resemble the tacos I just threw away. The guy in line before me came back and threw them in the garbage as well. Not to mention gyro style in this kind of wind and in a parking lot means coated in dirt and dust.
