Eating Along the Q Line: The 30th Avenue Stop in Astoria Is the Place for Greek Fare


If pristine bunches of tiny Champagne-style grapes ($2.49 per pound) and dusty orange persimmons ($2.69 per pound) don’t lure you into United Brothers Fruit Market , which holds court on the corner of 32nd St., the size of this green-and-yellow vegetable stand surely will. The massive, open-air market has catered to Greek and other picky produce shoppers for years, stocking everything from tubby heads of Long Island broccoli and pink-streaked cranberry beans ($2.99) to traditional Greek goods like sawtoothed dandelion greens ($1.29 a pound for bitter or sweet) or fresh, uncured green “Greek-type” olives ($3.99 a pound).
