If you’re looking for a weekend to savor amazing beverages and scrumptious sweets, then make plans to visit the LIC Flea & Food market the first weekend of August.
There are currently more than 90 combined vineyards and wineries on Long Island. The North Fork has especially swelled with grape-growing farms, alone boasting more than two-dozen wineries. Aside from producing nationally recognized wines, these Long Island wineries have become prime destinations for visitors attracted to relaxing weekends at rustic, vaulted-ceiling tasting rooms or vibrant outdoor spaces with views of seemingly endless fields of grape vines.
