Today’#shopsmall countdown takes us to Henry Arroyo’s “Henry’s Carrot Cakes” located inside the Jamaica Market (90-40 160th St.) just off of #JamaicaAvenue. After a brief closure last year, Henry’s Carrot Cakes just recently reopened and you can see Henry himself giving out samples of his fabulous carrot cakes Wednesday-Friday until the late afternoon. Henry’s Carrot Cakes sells a variety of flavored carrot cakes from chocolate, to rum- infused to cherry...but all flavors have a few things in common: quality ingredients and out-of-this-world flavor. Henry’s Carrot Cake provided a carrot cakes for our recent Jamaica Center BID Annual Meeting and as a testament to owner Henry Arroyo’s baking chops, not a single crumb remained. If you want to gift a special holiday treat to a colleague, neighbor, or party host, consider bringing one of these cakes!

Henry has been in the cake baking and selling business for at least 25 years. He loves the diversity of Downtown Jamaica and Jamaica Avenue and the positive attitudes of his customers, along with their enthusiasm and excitement when they taste his baked goods. But don’t take our word for it. See for yourself! Stop by for a sample and a purchase this Saturday for #SmallBusinessSaturday and show some love to Henry’s Carrot Cakes!
