Lower East Side Voices: Peasant Stock Prepares For New Era at Essex Street Market
In the next few weeks, the Essex Street Market will be moving from its historic home at 120 Essex St. to a gleaming new space on the south side of Delancey Street. Over the years, The Lo-Down has covered the happenings of the market almost religiously. At this transitional time, we wanted a fresh perspective on the changes ahead, so we asked the team at NY City News Service to spend some time with the vendors. We’ll be showcasing their videos in the next several days. Today, reporter Orla McCaffrey profiles mother-daughter duo Christine Juritsch and Emma Kestler of Peasant Stock.
