Food Cellar finally opens much-awaited Court Square store


Nov. 5, 2015 Staff Report

Food Cellar finally opened its Court Square location today.

The store opened at noon and shoppers were greeted to many of the trappings that are found at its upscale Hunters Point location.

The store, which is now open from 7 am- 10 pm seven-days a week, is located at 43-10 Crescent Street, on the ground floor (and basement) of the Linc LIC building.

The store is 14,000 square feet and includes sections devoted to fresh produce, meat & poultry, cheese, prepared items, baked goods and groceries. The store also comes with a small dining area, providing nearby workers with a place to eat lunch.

The opening of the high-end supermarket marks a significant milestone in the transformation of the Court Square area.

The area is undergoing an enormous transition driven largely by Rockrose, which is set to add more than 2,000 apartments to the area.

Food Cellar, which signed a 15-year lease in 2013, was expected to open in the summer of 2014 but faced several delays.

The Court Square market is Food Cellar’s second location.

For new residents in LI City… Options are Fresh Direct which has a distribution hub in LI City, Key Food on 21st street, Food Cellar 1 & 2 and my absolute favorite… Food Bazaar on Northern Boulevard! If you have not been, go! Very reasonable prices, very large and Stop & Shop is a block away and has a good meats section. I cab it there from Hunters Point and we still save a ton of money.


Was very excited when I heard about this 3 years ago, as they had a 15% senior discount. 3 years later, they finally open, but, sadly, the discount has long been discontinued. Ah, the joys of living in Court Square!


Really? Our nanny has the senior discount card which she still uses at Hunters Point FC. She used it last week. Maybe she was grandfathered in.


I saw cheese as high as thirty eight dollars a pound.

Private label facial tissue 175 for $2.99.
At Queensbridge supermarket we pay 160 for 99¢


Food Cellar is a decent market but after 3 years of shopping there, I think it is one of the biggest problems of living in LI City. Food Cellar is unbelievably expensive. It is cheaper to shop at Whole Foods in Manhattan and cab it home.
