Being a Long Island City native, I was happy to venture back to my old neighborhood with my sister to check out all it had to offer. I was even more pleasantly surprised at just how many food vendors were packed into a fairly small space. The quality of the food was far above what you would expect to find at a regular flea market. The options were endless. There was something for just about anyone and everyone: BBQ, Japanese, Columbian, Ecuadorian, Taiwanese. Jerk, Poutine, oysters, funnel cakes. crepes, dumplings and more.

Unfortunately, I was not able to taste everything that caught my eye and interest. Because BBQ is my favorite cuisine, I started off with a brisket sandwich from Butcher’s Bar. The sandwich was delicious and the guys working behind the table were friendly and accommodating as I snapped pictures for this post. The brisket was extremely tender and juicy. It was topped with a creamy coleslaw, BBQ sauce and a pickle. I should have only eaten half to save room for all of the other things I wanted to try but I could not resist.

Next up was the red velvet funnel cake, which was the second reason I was really interested in getting to this food and flea market; BBQ being number one. There were 5 varieties of funnel cakes. They are made fresh when you order them. I enjoyed the red velvet but it did not blow me away as I expected. My guess is the apple may have been a better option.

I also had a butter and sugar crepe which was scrumptious. I bought a chocolate flourless cake from the same vendor which was amazing. Because I just couldn’t eat any more, I took home a beef kabob and a “Mango the Buffalo” hot dog. Both were fantastic.

I will make it a point to get back there at least 2-3 more times before it closes for the winter. There are so many things left to try. If you are in the area, I suggest you check it out for yourself. They are open on Saturdays and Sundays 11a-6pm.
