Veselka, Nom Wah, and Cafe Grumpy Join Market Line Roster
With Phase II of Essex Crossing well underway at this point, developer consortium Delancey Street Associates has another ace up its sleeve. Announcing the first round of vendors joining the roster at the Market Line. The purported bazaar-like marketplace spans three blocks along Broome Street and will “bring together an eclectic mix of more than 100 locally sourced food, art, music and fashion vendors that reflect the character and culture of the LES.”
That “character and culture” will include stalls for neighborhood mainstays like Veselka and Nom Wah Tea Parlor.
According to the press release, when complete, the 150,000-square foot Market Line will not only be the largest market in New York City, it will be one of the largest in the world. And they say size doesn’t matter!
Anyway, the undertaking adjoins the new home for the 78-year-old Essex Street Market, whose current vendors are slated to move into the new space later this year.
Here’s the initial lineup of new vendors for the Market Line:
Kuro-Obi by Ippudo New York
Schaller & Weber
Rohan Mehra, a Principal at the Prusik Group, which is spearheading the Market Line says, “We want the Market Line to be the everyday food-shopping destination for this incredible community. At the same time, the market format will provide an ideal opportunity for small local businesses to grow.”
Just in an upscale setting.
