Queens (mainly Astoria) Market Tour

tummyache | Dec 27, 2007 10:25 AM

I'm taking my mom on a tour of cool food markets in Astoria and surrounding neighborhoods and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. We like just browsing around cool food places but if anyone has any tips on specific things to buy that you might not find unless you knew to look for it, let me know. Here is what I have so far:


Titan and Artopolis for greek items

Rio Bonito for Brazilian stuff: my mom had heard from a brazilian coworker about the coffee...anything else to look out for?

Trade Fair on 30th ave: just to marvel at the diversity per square foot ratio

Sorriso's-because the guys who work there are ridiculously nice and they carry good stuff

Cassinelli's- I haven't been but sounds like a cool place for fresh pasta

Rose and Joe's-maybe we'll stop for a sicilian slice

Laziza Bakery- for konafa and middle eastern pastries


My mom mentioned hearing about a sunnyside bakery that makes great babka. I'm guessing from searching on the boards that it might be Nita's Roumanian bakery on Greenpoint ave. can anyone verify that?


Han Ah Rum market on woodside ave for fresh tofu and biji


Patel Bros- huge indian supermarket

thought about one of those colombian bakeries: villa colombia, miracali, la nueva, etc. any tips? or we could just go to casa del pan in astoria
