News Flash: The Essex Street Market is Open For Business!

Must Read

There’s been a lot of talk in recent months about the Essex Street Market’s future.  Years from now, it’s moving to a new facility as part of the big Essex Crossing development project.  But some people seem to have gotten the mistaken impression that the place is already closed. Not so!

For quite awhile now, vendors have been telling us that foot traffic through the market has dropped off considerably.  There’s really no explanation for it, but some merchants believe the publicity concerning the Seward Park project and the market’s eventual move to a shiny new complex on the south side of Delancey Street are responsible.   In truth, the move won’t happen for at least five years (in the year 2018), and the city has committed to keeping the old facility open until the shift happens.

So, you still have something like 1,640 shopping days left at the historic market — one of New York City’s treasures.   Click here for the vendor directory.
