Spring is here (mostly) and that means it’s the return of outdoor market season! Break your usual market routine and head up to Long Island City this weekend for the opening of the fourth annual LIC Flea. The vendors include a selection of artisans, food vendors, jewelry makers and more. But one of the highlights not to miss is the all-Queens beer garden, the first destination to serve a full lineup of Queens-based breweries. It’s got eight beers on tap, serving up tasty brews from Queens Brewery, Rockaway Brewery, Finback, Singlecut, BigAlice and Bridge and Tunnel. After all, we heard a lot of smart people are going to Queens these days.
The LIC flea runs 11am-6pm Saturdays and Sundays through October 30, at 5-25 46th Ave., Long Island City. Check out a sampling of some of the vendors here.
