The Market NYC is Moving from Mulberry Street Condo Building After 2 Years

Posted on: April 3rd, 2018 at 5:00 am by

After two short years, Market NYC is fleeing its newish space at the southeast corner of East Houston and Mulberry Streets.

The plethora of handwritten signs indicate that the upscale flea is moving to 427 Broadway (near Howard Street). Many of the vendors have already cleared out, but the remaining few tell us the last day at 290 Mulberry is on or around April 22.

As previously reported, Market NYC had signed a ten-year lease here back in 2016. It’s now leaving Little Italy for the second time in the last several years. It was just over six years ago that the young designers departed their decade-running residency in the gym behind the St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral. The group first relocated to the Meatpacking District, but would eventually settle at 159 Bleecker Street in 2013 (and later open on Bedford Avenue).

Market NYC did not immediately respond to our multiple requests for comment on the move.
