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.
Owner, Christine Juritsch
I worked in the restaurant business for years and always wanted a place of my own, so here I am. I do soups, everything from scratch, right on site every day: family recipes and some new ones of my own.
The Market has a great history and there are a lot of female entrepreneurs. We support each other and visit to see what’s cooking that day and how business is.
I use the best ingredients and make small batches daily. It’s made with love. Every day, people say my soup is amazing and that’s great. The market is my dream come true.
