Essex Street Market

120 Essex St. New York, NY 10002 | Lower East Side | 212-312-3603

Location Description:

This is an indoor market featuring dozens of different vendors, including fishmongers, butchers, vegetable sellers, grocers, and a few non-food stalls, like a tailor, a barber, etc. Much like the Arthur Avenue Market, though not as large, this is an indispensable spot for foodies looking for harder-to-find goods like ethnic specialties (tripe, pork belly, yuca) or anything you need for dinner, fresh and well priced.
