A number of Queens-based vendors will gather to sell handmade and other artisan goods at an area winter market next week.

The event will be held at East Elmhurst’s Bulova Corporate Center, located at 75-20 Astoria Blvd., from Dec. 17-19, and marks the first winter market for Bulova.

The three-day market, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., was organized in partnership with MiQ, formerly known as Made in Queens, a tangent of the Queens Economic Development Corporation that aims to promote local makers and manufacturers.

The public will be able to sort through and purchase goods ranging from handmade accessories, jewelry, homemade bath and shower products and more from the lineup of vendors, who will set up at the center’s atrium.

Confirmed local vendors that will be in attendance at the free-admittance event include Treestar NYC, which sells homemade body products; Embellished life, which sells hand-embroidered hair accessories; R+D, which creates “fun and kitschy” 3-D printed jewelry; and Sandra Smith, which makes handmade baskets and bags with custom messages.

The Queens Theatre and Queens Museum, according to MiQ, will also be at the market to provide information about their programs and season passes.

So they’re going to hold it three weekdays during hours most people work. So the only people that can attend are retirees, those who work night shifts, and the unemployed. Why not have it on a weekend where people can actually go?/? Bad decision

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

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

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.
