There are only two weeks left at the biggest holiday market in Queens.

Come out to the Queens Holiday Market at the Shops at Atlas Park, located on the second floor above the Toys R Us Express, to find one-of-a-kind gifts for everyone on your list, including handcrafted, vintage and international items as well as edible gifts.

There is great food for the whole family, delicious sweets, an all-Queens beer garden, an arcade and music.

This Saturday, Dec. 12, Little Pulp will be running a “make your own card” craft event at 4:45 p.m. Kids can make a card for their loved ones compliments of Little Pulp.

On Sunday, Dec. 13, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., the U14 Blau Weiss Gottschee (BWG) Academy soccer team based in Middle Village will be running a gift wrapping fundraiser. Come get your gift wrapped and help them to raise money to send all of their teammates, from varied backgrounds, to play professional teams in Spain.

The team is one of a select few to be chosen from the U.S. to participate, and not all of these talented and hardworking members can fund their own trip. Enjoy yourself at the market while they do your wrapping and you do something good for these talented youngsters.

To get to the market, customers should take the escalator next to TJ Maxx or the elevator or stairs between Toys R Us and Payless.

While at the Queens Holiday Market, make sure to check out these vendors.
