Sponsored Post: Meet La Tiendita – Lower Eastside Girls Club

The Essex Street Market is a Lower East Side staple when it comes to fresh food and prepared goods. Meet the vendors in this profile series and swing by the market all month long during May to celebrate 75 years of Essex Street Market.

Manager, Lizbeth Bruno

I’ve been part of the Girl’s Club for almost my whole life. This is a program for the older girls to get real world experience.

Everything here, from the food to the aprons to the potholders is ‘girl made,’ and all the money goes back into the Girl’s Club.

It’s fantastic here. The vendors support each other and the community supports us. It’s an overall experience I wouldn’t want anyone to miss out on.
