One of the previous markets at Singlecut.

We love to keep track of all the different places the Queens County Market goes, but we are always happy to see it come back to Astoria. This weekend it will be at Singlecut Beersmiths, which IMO is a great space for the market. As usual, the market will offer all sorts of tasty items from local purveyors. Many of these products make great holiday gifts.

Here’s the vendor list:

  • Charlito’s Cocina—wonderful cured meats/sausages/charcuterie including Salami Picante (a spicy cured sausage); traditional Chorizo (a bit spicy); Campo Seco (cured country sausage); Trufa Seca (black truffle sausage); and meatless Fig “Salami” (vegetarian and vegan friendly). Know that the meats used are humanely raised—they only use pasture raised, heritage breed pork. The company is based in LIC.
  • Gustavo’s Salsa—FANTASTIC chipotle salsa. They’re also offering a new product, Chile Verde. Another spicy salsa, this one is made with tomatillos and serrano peppers.
  • Petalouda Bakery—Greek pastries and cakes: Revani (farina cake); Karidopita (walnut cake made with yogurt); Baklava; and Koularakia (breakfast cookies). Products are baked in LIC.
  • Mountain Morsels—dark chocolate, fruit and nut clusters made with fair-trade chocolate.
  • Bibingka-Esk—popular and yummy holiday-season Filipino rice cakes. These are gluten-free, too!
  • Ukuva iAfrica—Spices and sauces inspired by travels throughout Africa. Products of note are their Cape Malay curry and Harissa Moroccan Spice Blend.
  • La Crepe Cest Si Bon—Savory and sweet Breton/French crepes made with buckwheat flour.
  • Meringue Queen—Butterscotch and chocolate chip small batch meringue cookies.

And don’t forget—you’re at SingleCut! The beer continues to be delish, and if you’re looking for a boozy gift, their growlers are awesome. The beer flight is a serious good deal, too.

The Queens County Market goes from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, December 14. Singlecut is located at 19-33 37th Street.
