Here you’ll find corporate heavy hitters: Burlington, H&M, Old Navy, Foot Locker, Snipes, Marshalls, Raymour & Flanigan and NY & Co. but also a growing presence of indie shops, restaurants, and services, including Make Me Over Beauty Bar, Original Herbal Remedies and Lulu’s Holistics.
Foodies will enjoy pupusas aplenty at the rising cluster of Salvadorian restaurants along the western portion of the Avenue, pizza served piping hot from the charmingly vintage Jamaica treasure known as Margherita Pizza, and the indelible carrot cake sold by Henry’s Carrot Cakes, one of the many vendors located within the vibrant Jamaica Market, an all-season indoor cluster of homegrown microentrepreneurs.
Jamaica Avenue is also home to two outdoor farmers markets (Parsons Public Space on Fridays & 160th Street off of Jamaica Avenue on Saturdays).
