[Luca & Bosco serves “fine crafted” ice cream]Three new tenants were somehow squeezed into the limited capacity Essex Street Market. The new stalls are all situated beside each other in the northern section of the warehouse, a corner that will soon serve bagels, soup, and ice cream.

[Peasant Stock meddles in soups]Construction activities here had been ongoing for months, but now the unveiling. The three new vendors are:

  • Luca & Bosco – this city-based company now employs an ice cream cart at the northern entrance of the market. Co-founders Catherine Oddenino and Ruthie Vishlitzky named the company after their canines, and specialize in “fine crafted” ice cream.
  • Peasant Stock – beginning this fall, patrons will have an opportunity to purchase an array of soups, all of which are to be made onsite.
  • The third is an as-yet-unidentified bagel shop, which will occupy the northeast corner. There is still some additional work that needs to be done, but should open in the coming weeks.

Let’s hope the changes aren’t in vain, since we all know life is limited for this iteration of the Essex Market in the shadow of SPURA.
