¡BIENVENIDOS!




In 1936, Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia opened the Park Avenue Retail Market, which was previously an informal East Harlem gathering place for pushcart vendors and other merchants. From the 1930s to the 1950s, the area became home to Puerto Rican, Dominican, Cuban, and Mexican immigrants, transforming East Harlem into the vibrant Spanish Harlem, or El Barrio — and the Market into “La Marqueta.”

Today, La Marqueta’s rich blend of community, culture, and cuisine continues to thrive in what has become one of the largest Latinx neighborhoods in New York City. And as we look to the future, the best is yet to come. Together, the City Council and NYCEDC are spearheading growth and modernization for La Marqueta — and countless new ways to enjoy it — for the community!

WE’RE GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
