Huge H Mart location to open in Long Island within months
Renowned Korean grocery chain H Mart is set to further solidify its presence in New York City with the planned opening of its largest food court yet within its Long Island City supermarket. This exciting development promises to bring a vibrant culinary hub to the neighborhood, attracting both local residents and food enthusiasts from across the city.
Opening in phases, the food court is expected to debut its initial stalls this spring at the H Mart location at 48-18 Northern Boulevard, which opened in 2022. This expansive space will then undergo further expansion in the summer, welcoming additional food vendors and solidifying its position as H Mart’s premier culinary destination in New York.
Given H Mart’s devoted following and the resounding success of its existing food courts in Flushing (opened in 1989) and Bayside, Queens (established in recent years), this new venture is poised to become a major draw. Residents of Long Island City and neighboring boroughs can expect a mouthwatering array of authentic Korean fare, featuring specialty rice, kimchi, and a diverse selection of delectable Korean snacks rarely found elsewhere.
This announcement comes on the heels of H Mart’s much-anticipated reopening of its first-ever Queens location in October 2023, a move met with fervent enthusiasm by the retailer’s loyal fanbase. Founded in Queens in 1982, H Mart has since ascended to the title of the largest Asian supermarket chain in the United States, steadily expanding its reach across the country for over four decades with no signs of slowing down.
Further underlining its commitment to growth, H Mart is also gearing up for the February 17th opening of a new location within New Jersey’s American Dream mall. These ambitious expansion plans demonstrate H Mart’s unwavering dedication to providing exceptional Asian grocery experiences and delectable culinary offerings to a wider audience.
