LIC Flea to kick off 2015 season April 11


March 9, 2015 By Michael Florio

The LIC Flea & Food is gearing up for its third year.

The flea will start up again on April 11 and will run every Saturday and Sunday from 10am through 6 pm through October. The flea takes place on an empty lot owned by Plaxall at the corner of Fifth Street and 46th Avenue, just one block behind the Pepsi-Cola sign.

Items for sale typically include food, collectibles, antiques, arts and crafts, jewelry, and fashion item.

The flea, which is run by the Queens Courier in conjunction with Plaxall, began selling wine and beer last year after receiving the green light from Community Board 2.

Popular vendors that will be returning include Butcher Bar, Tea and Milk and Vivian Jewlery, according to the Queens Courier.

Tea and Milk, which sells tea and bubble tea, gained so much recognition at the flea market last year that its owners opened a shop in Astoria in January.

According to the Queens Courier, new food vendors include Lumpia Merienda, Chuta Madre and CakeBox NYC.
