Winter DayLife Festival at the Lowline Lab Happens Feb. 12

lowline/essex street market

Coming up on Sunday, Feb. 12, the vendors of the Essex Street Market will be participating in the second annual Winter DayLife Festival at The Lowline Lab.

A prototype of the underground park has been set up in a vacant building of the Essex Street Market since the fall of 2015. It will be closing in the next few weeks as developers of Essex Crossing prepare the building for demolition. So this will be one of your last chances to see the Lowline Lab in its current form.

Merchants taking part in the festival include Osaka Grub, Arancini Bros., Saxelby Cheesemongers, Ni Japanese Deli, Pain D’Avignon, Porto Rico Coffee, Rainbo’s Fish, Puebla Mexican, and Formaggio Essex. More vendors will be announced in the near future.

Winter DayLife will take place from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. If you’re interested in attending, please RSVP.

Here’s another market-related event coming up next Wednesday, Feb. 1. Three women trailblazers from the food world will be taking part in a panel discussion. It’s part of the market’s evening “Talk & Taste” series. The discussion will be moderated by Caroline Shin of the web series Cooking With Granny. Panelists include DeDe Lahman, co-Owner of Clinton Street Baking Company; Claudia Wu, co-founder and creative director of Cherry Bombe magazine; and Shalini Singh, founder and instructor at Shalini’s Kitchen. The evening starts at 6:30 p.m. with bites from Clinton Street Baking Company and Saxelby Cheesemongers.  You can register here.
