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.

My husband Luis and I have been at Essex as a family business for 17 years. We’ve seen a lot of changes. Things come and go, but we’re still here.
There’s this sense of community with both the vendors and our customers. It’s a special place and every day is like a new adventure—there’s always something.
And it’s a great feeling when our customers tell us our meat is fresh and delicious. 17 years and no matter how many times we hear that, it never gets old.
