Bangladeshi/Pakistani market to take over Jackson Heights Food Court


Aug. 13, 2015 By Christian Murray

The mystery behind the Jackson Heights Food Court is no more.

Ittadi Bazar, a Bangladeshi and Pakistani restaurant/market, is moving into the space that had previously been occupied by the food court, located at 73-07 37th Road, which mysteriously closed last month.

Ittadi Bazar will be half supermarket and half restaurant, according to owner Abu Numan. The restaurant and supermarket will feature Indian, Bangladeshi and Pakistani food/items.

The opening date is still in the works, but Numan said he plans to open in less than a month.

Numan said there continues to be a need for a store in Jackson Heights that targets these cultural groups, as their respective populations grow.

Numan, who also owns two other supermarkets, including Ittadi Cash & Carry, a Halal market located at 37-03 73rd Street, decided to take over the location because it provides significantly more space.

“It is much bigger than my shop down the block,” he said.

However, he did say he plans to keep both shops open, at least for the time being.

Numan also owns a Bangladeshi supermarket in Jamaica.
