The Brooklyn Flea has been hogging the limelight a bit lately, but starting this June, Long Island City in Queens will be getting a flea market all to itself.
The market, which will be called LIC Flea & Food, will go up every weekend on the Queens waterfront, and will showcase "a unique mix of vendors focused on food and drink as well as antiques, collectibles, art, crafts, furniture, clothing, fashion, and more every Saturday and Sunday starting June 2013," according to their website.
While no vendors have been made public yet, and the location has only been hinted at on their Facebook page, it appears as if will have a similar layout to the Brooklyn Flea, albeit with a much nicer view. According to the site, it’s been "curated with the diversity and spirit of Queens in mind. Home to the best food and some of the most unique vendors on the planet, we’ve recruited the best of the city so be prepared for a fleatastic experience."
For more information, you can add your name to their mailing list through their website. There’s also a form there where interested vendors can sign up. Color us intrigued!
