Foodcellar in Hunters Point

Foodcellar in Hunters Point

June 10, 2013 By Bill Parry

Foodcellar, the Long Island City supermarket, is expected to be opening its second location—this one in the Court Square vicinity.

The popular supermarket, which has been in Hunters Point since 2008, is in discussions to open a 24,000sq-foot retail space at Linc LIC at 43-10 Crescent St.

Burak Can, a co-owner of Foodcellar, confirmed that the store is likely to be opening at the new location.  However, he said, “the lease hasn’t been signed. It probably won’t be done for a couple of weeks.”

The original Foodcellar (4-85 47th Rd.) became the first supermarket to open near the waterfront. The market features natural and organic foods.

Linc LIC is a 709 unit luxury rental building opening this summer. The new market will occupy two levels.

SInce the other food cellar is opening in my area across from law school, city court building, my mom said that I should get a part time jib there at food cellar and I would love to get a part time job at food cellar in my area right near cresent st.


I agree, No to another Food Cellar in Long Island City, it’s overpriced and the food selection isn’t that great. It’s a bad copy of Whole Food with higher prices , less products and lower overall quality.


Just what we need, another overpriced Food Cellar in LIC. Are there are no other grocery chains that want to come here?

If you’re on the fence, would-be grocers, consider the tidy profit to be made if you (unlike Food Cellar) can somehow stomach charging less than 6.99/lb for chicken breast and 19/lb for salmon. We need you – come to LIC!
