Vendors vie for coveted spots at new LIC Flea & Food Market

Flea & Food 1

April 30, 2013 By Christian Murray

The organizers of a new, outdoor flea market have been flooded with applications from potential vendors.

LIC Flea & Food, which will be located at the corner of 5th Street and 46th Ave., has room for about 60 vendors. To date, about 200 vendors have applied for those spots, said Joshua Schneps, the president of LIC FLEA & FOOD.

The organizers, who held a press conference at the site of the market on Tuesday, are trying to create a flea market that offers a variety of different product types– from food, antiques, collectibles, arts, crafts and fashion—in making their selections. The market will take place on Saturdays and Sundays– and will start on June 15.

While Long Island City vendors will be among the 60 chosen, Schneps said that the vendors are being selected based on the quality of their products as opposed to where they are based.

Three well-known LIC businesses, however, have already been selected. Manducatis Rustica, Matted LIC and Malu will be selling their products.

The flea market, however, is also going to include new businesses that may not be able to afford a storefront, officials said.

The organizers hope the market will become a weekend destination for residents and visitors from around the city.

“We hope to create a venue for residents to stay connected in their own community by keeping them local and attracting people from all over Queens, New York City and even tourists,” Schneps said at the press conference.

Schneps said that the market is within walking distance from the No. 7, E and G trains. Furthermore, there will be buses that take people to the market—and back– from the East River Ferry.

The market is expected to receive an influx of attendees, since residents at TF Cornerstone’s development at 45-45 Center Blvd will begin to move in by early June. That development, which is next to the site of the market, has 820 apartments.

Sexual relationship is a pleasurable give and take relationship with one?s partner. If anything fails on this give to get process, it’s enough to derail their bond. But any thing can occur that is certainly unpredictable. Moreover, able to keep a normal sexual relationship means keeping oneself physically healthy. So just about any sexual disfunction must be addressed with utmost care. One such health risk is impotence problems commonly within men. Unable to keep a proper and prolonged penile erection leads to male impotence. This is infact a serious problem for maintaining a healthy sexual relationship. So when there arises such a problem it?s smart to treat it in lieu of sitting quiet.

The choice between the various available treatment methods involve treatment having a proper medicine. Response to an oral agent including Levitra can be quite effective within this context. Studies show that male impotence is primarily as a result of insufficient blood flow for the penis? veins and not enough stimulation as well. Practising oral therapy of Levitra boosts the rate of blood circulation that gradually stimulates the penis producing a hard erection, adequate with an intercourse.

Levitra is certainly one such drug which is discovered to be extremely effective. Clinically it has been proved that it even conditions patients that are suffering from various medical problems like blood pressure, high-cholesterol or diabetes. A lot of men, who took Levitra initially, responded positively for gaining high rate of success. Besides, many experts have also found it can be also taken along with other medicines utilized to treat other medical conditions.


I just dont get why preference would be given to existing food stores that are already walking distance from the flea. Would love to see more of the smaller businesses getting preference or recognition as mentioned.
