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.
