For over 100 years, Essex Market has been a cornerstone of the Lower East Side. Today, the market is newly renovated with 37,000 square feet of sunlight-drenched space. The air is filled with the aromas of tacos, bagels, and cuisine from all over the world, while fishmongers, cheesemongers, and micro-brewers serve up their own amazing fare. The market also has weekly programs where kids and adults can learn to cook in a start-of-the-art demonstration kitchen.
