Astoria Artisan Market in Queens

Yesterday afternoon, we drove all the way to Queens to check out an artisan market plus beer garden that I just found out about.
The name is Astoria Market and is located in Astoria, Queens.
It was quite a hike from the eastern part of Long Island where we are. And the traffic did not help either despite the fact that it was a Sunday. It looked like the Mets or some other team (pardon me, but I don’t have a clue about sports) were playing and we had to drive right past the stadium.
But once we got there, we had a blast!
The artisan market is located inside the main hall of the Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden. It is a small and very cozy event that takes place on several Sundays throughout the year.

Then, after you are done browsing the artisan products, you simply step outside into the beer garden, where they have a good selection of European and American beer and food and live music. The whole atmosphere is very central European and I did feel right at home.

So, although the artisan market is a bit small, it is easy to make your visit a whole afternoon event.
Check them out on the web (http://www.astoriamarket.com/) or in person if you are in the area!
