The organizers of Astoria Flea and Food have canceled July’s first night market due to weather and added a new date at the end of the month.
The annual flea market takes place from 7 p.m. to midnight in the Kaufman Astoria Studios backlot, located on 36th Street between 35th Avenue and 34th Avenue, and was originally set for July 9, July 16 and July 23.
With storms forecasted and tomorrow’s market canceled, an additional date has been set for July 30, a representative said.
The Astoria Flea and Food night market features Queens-based food vendors and breweries as well as antiques, vintage wares, collectibles, art, crafts, fashion and more. There will also be a beer garden with eight craft beers on tap exclusively from Queens-based breweries.
Astoria Flea and Food comes from the team behind LIC Flea and Food, which runs every Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 5-25 46th Ave., in Long Island City, until October 30.
