DayLife returned with a winter edition yesterday. Indoors at the Lowline Lab prototype park, it was the second such pairing in recent years and featured various vendors from the nearby Essex Street Market. And apparently it was the place to be. The lines queued early, and snaked around the block to Rivington and Norfolk for the duration of the afternoon.

Vendors that participated in the one-day event included Saxelby Cheesemongers, Osaka Grub, Davidovich Bakery, Puebla Mexican Food, Porto Rico Coffee, Arancini Bros., and more. Basically, the festival was one big advertisement for the Lowline, organized by the Lower East Side Partnership (formerly, BID), and potential prelude of the type of vending the park could support if and when it ever opens. But it also helped remind the public that the Essex Market is still in business two years before its eventual move.
