The Kew Gardens Flea Market, which raises money for Jamaica Hospital’s pediatric department, will be in operation tomorrow.

The market, which is organized by Kew Gardens resident Lisa Altimari, takes place four times a year in the northern parking lot of the train station  at 82-60 Austin St. The market has been part of the neighborhood for 30 years.

The event will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The rain date for the market is Sept. 29.

“Come Shop our FAB vendors selling some Awesome & unique items,”  Altimari wrote on Facebook.

All of the proceeds from the vendors’ fees will go to the hospital, according to an Eventbrite post for the market.
