Court Square Flea will take place at 22-43 Jackson Ave. in the parking lot of the Teamsters Local 808 building, next to the Court Square Diner, and across the street from the museum, and is being organized by the founder of another artisan market based in Astoria.
"I though wow, wouldn't this be a wonderful location," said Diane Modric, who has run the Astoria Market at the Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden and other pop-up markets since 2010, and had been looking for a site to host another market in Long Island City.
"I went ahead and spoke with the Teamsters and they were really excited about it — they want to support local vendors and the arts," she said.
The market will run for at least two days this fall, from 12 to 6 p.m. on Sept. 20 and 27, with the potential for additional dates this year.
Modric said they plan to continue the market next spring and summer, starting back up again in April or May. How often it will take place is still up in the air, though she said it will happen "fairly steadily."
The parking lot can fit up to 40 vendors, and though a list is still being finalized, Modric said shoppers can expect an "eclectic" mix of goods.
"You're definitely going to be able to find food, art, vintage wear, accessories, jewelry, things like that," she said, saying they hope to join the list of existing destinations for people to visit in the artsy neighborhood.
"Shoppers will be able to got to PS1, go to SculptureCenter, Gantry Park is there," she said.

The Teamsters did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
