New Age Fresh Market
Location: 160-06 Northern Blvd, Flushing, NY

This former theater building was converted sometime around 2008 to an independent Chinese supermarket, L&L Supermarket, which was closed by about 2012. By 2014, it was up and running as the current tenant, New Age Fresh Market. The sprawling 20,000 square foot, two-floor building includes a food court on the second floor (not open at the time of my visit) and an independent bakery on the first floor. The checkouts run along the front wall, with seafood, meat, and dairy on the left side wall, packaged meat in the back, and frozen on the right wall. Produce is in the front center with grocery aisles behind it.
A sharp paint scheme and signage in many languages brighten up the outside of this hulking building, which feels rather out of place along Northern Blvd.
Seafood, including live fish, is the first department you see upon entering the store, with a spacious produce department just next to it.
The decor is top-notch. Very modern and it works very well in this store.
Here you can also see the food court on the second floor.
Service meat just behind seafood.
Many of these cases appear to be secondhand, but still it's pretty nice.
The grocery aisles, however, are not nearly as impressive as the perimeter.
Back wall of the store containing the packaged meats and other refrigerated items such as tofu.
Frozen is in the last aisle.
We return to really nice decor in the frozen aisle. And now before we head out, let's stop into the bakery in the front of the store and check out some of what they have to offer - which is not to be missed!
And that is all! Come back tomorrow for another store tour, moving down to Bayside!
