Queens is the most diverse county in the United States with half of the population foreign-born, according to the 2010 Census.
Our mission is to connect Queens communities with local food businesses by providing a marketplace for producers to sell their goods and expand their distribution into Queens.
We support a diverse group of entrepreneurs & small businesses by providing low-cost and affordable means to introduce, test and market their food products while building a loyal and local customer base.
Our first event was held on April 14, 2012 and we plan on hosting monthly pop-up markets in neighborhoods throughout Queens.
Born in the Philippines and raised in Queens, Katrina Schultz Richter is the founder of Queens County Market. She previously served as an event planner at Thomas Keller’s Per Se restaurant and most recently managed Hot Bread Kitchen, a social enterprise business incubator.
