Kick Off Outdoor Eating Season at the Essex Market Block Party

May 14 2018

Sun and warmth have finally returned to New York City, signaling the start of street fair season. That’s right–for a few precious weeks, we clamor to escape apartment life for the great urban out-of-doors.

For four years and running we’ve been kicking it off with the Essex Street Market Block Party, which goes down this Saturday, May 19th, from 12-5PM. This year is majorly special, as it’s the market’s last year at 120 Essex Street before moving across Delancey Street to a new home at Essex Crossing.

To celebrate this new era of public markets, 15+ food vendors will take over Essex Street between Rivington and Delancey for a historic eating extravaganza. Six of those are vendors that will be joining the new Essex Market when it opens this fall, including: Samesa, Harlem Shambles, Josephine’s Feast, Flower Power and Chinatown Ice Cream Factory.

Also on the roster are beloved market favorites Saxelby Cheesemongers, Puebla Mexican, Tra La La, Ni Japanese, Arancini Bros. and more. And don’t forget your dancing shoes–with live music from Yotoco, Cumbiagra and DJ tres dos, you’ll be dancing off those hot dogs all afternoon long.

So mark your calendars for Saturday, May 19th from 12–5PM outside Essex Street Market for an annual Block Party you don’t want to miss!
