They are getting ready for tomorrow’s Opening Day at the long-awaited new supermarket on Queens Blvd.

Healthy Local Lunching

The relatively new Organic Market on 71st Road has quickly become one of my favorite places to get a delicious, and healthy, lunch in Forest Hills. The place was even recently highlighted in Time Out magazine’s Queens Issue for its tasty fare. I excerpt from the article:

Ten things we love about Austin Street

5 Healthy wraps at Organic Market
This juice bar and deli is a hot spot for local lunchers looking for nonprocessed meals. A well-presented honey mustard and grilled chicken whole-wheat wrap with a side of couscous salad ($7) should fuel your shopping bender. 107-14 71st Rd between Austin St and Queens Blvd (718-575-0082)

I have found the sandwiches from Organic Market to be a cut above the rest in taste and quality. I am always impressed when an establishment finds a way to make something as simple as a sandwich so delicious that you want to keep coming back for more and more.

And, if you just want to pick up some healthier beverages or groceries, Organic Market has a well-stocked selection. It’s a smaller and faster alternative to Natural given the shorter lines.
