The annual ‘Warming Up Winter’ holiday market returns to the Queens Museum this Sunday, showcasing nearly 60 local artisans and offering plenty of tasty foods to try.

The holiday market, a collaboration between the Queens Museum and the Queens Night Market, will be held on Sunday, Dec. 15 from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Queens Museum in Flushing Meadows Corona Park.

“This is our third Holiday Market in partnership with the Queens Museum, and we couldn’t be happier,” said John Wang, founder of the Queens Night Market. “There will be tons of local products that will make perfect holiday gifts.”

The market is the perfect opportunity to get holiday shopping down, while also supporting local artists and vendors.

Local items for sale at the market include paintings, 3D-printed jewelry, Mexican beadwork, Southeast Asian fabric, crochet toys, custom greeting cards, small batch body products, ceramics, robot lamps, local perfumes, photography and baked goods.

Food such as jerk chicken from Treat Yourself Jerk Chicken, birria tacos and pozole from EL Trompo and mochi waffles from Moffle Bar will also be for sale.

DJ Marla Jo will soundtrack the afternoon and Bobby Guitar will play live music as well.

The Queens Museum will also be debuting their gift shop, The August Tree, this year. It’s curated to celebrate the art, history and diversity of Queens.

A full list of vendors can be found here.

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
