Astoria Flea & Food market extended for another 10 weeks


June 24, 2014 By Christian Murray

The Astoria Flea & Food, which launched this spring in the outdoor movie lot at Kaufman Astoria Studios, was only supposed to be on for eight consecutive Sundays.

However, given its success the flea & food market has been extended another 10 Sundays, through Labor Day weekend (August 31), according to owner Joshua Schneps, of Schneps Communications.

“We have had great attendance, with people coming from within the community and from outside,” Schneps said. He said the Astoria Flea & Food has about 85 vendors, and that the quality of those vendors has helped bring in strong crowds.

The market features food vendors, antiques, collectibles, arts and fashion.

The Astoria Flea & Food takes place at Kaufman Astoria’s backlot on 36th Street between 34th and 35th Avenues from 10 am through 6pm on Sundays.

Schneps also runs the LIC Flea & Food in Hunters Point, which he established in 2013.
