These New Vendors will Join Essex Street Market 2.0 at Essex Crossing

Another slew of vendors has been announced for Essex Street Market 2.0.

The New York City Economic Development Corporation, its overlord, has added three trendy purveyors to fill the stalls at 115 Delancey. Samesa, the Mediterranean joint run by chef-brothers Max and Eli Sussman; Josephine’s Feast!, the city-based jam and preserves maker; Saffron, the Brooklyn-based florist founded in 2009; and Flower Power Herbs and Roots, an herbal apothecary shop that was founded in the East Village 25 years ago. The newcomers will join the 26 current vendors at the new Essex Crossing location later this fall.

“We’re thrilled to welcome another diverse group of vendors to the list of businesses joining us at the new Essex Street Market in the fall,” said NYCEDC President James Patchett in a public statement. “Being able to provide affordable space to these vendors, many of whom have been at the market for generations, is at the core of our mission. The new location for the market will celebrate the best of the local community and continue to be an integral part of the neighborhood for years to come.”

As previously noted, the multimillion-dollar new home of the Essex Street Market (aka Site 2) will also house 195 rental apartments (half affordable) and a 14-screen Regal Cinema Theater. It also connects to the Market Line, a purported bazaar-like marketplace spanning three blocks along Broome Street that hopes to “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.”
