Essex Street Market

Last Updated March 29, 2016


Alive and bustling—and open on Sundays—Essex Street Market is a place you'll be tempted to eat your way through.


In the early years, Essex Street Market’s identity was shaped by the Lower East Side’s Jewish and Italian immigrants, who served as both the merchants and the customers. Today, local residents get personalized service as they gather to browse a diverse collection of goods and sundries including organic meats, fish, pastries, artisan breads and cheeses, and fresh produce as well as visit several restaurants.

Beyond its intended function as a shopping destination, the Market is also a social environment where residents came to connect and share ideas.
