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.
Founders Catherine Oddenino & Ruthie Vishlitzky
We have totally different palates, so together we come up with the best of different flavors for everyone, probably over 100 with many more to go. We do flavors that are bit more sophisticated but still fun, like a grownup Ben & Jerry’s.
We Think Essex is an incredibly vibrant community, a great mix of interesting things. We love being part of the Market family.
When you think about it, how many people get to serve happiness for a living? It’s really amazing.
