May 10, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm$25
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED–but please let us know if you’d like to take part in a future tour of Essex Street Market!
Join Susan Rosenbaum of Enthusiastic Gourmet as she takes you on a tour of the historic Essex Street Market. Dating back to 1940, the Essex Street Market has been home to an array of food purveyors catering to the tastes of the Lower East Side. The market’s history reflects that of the Lower East Side, both the good times and the bad.
The Essex Street Market is a community-driven market, changing with the times while remembering the past. Home to over 20 food shops, the market offers a multi-cultural shopping experience from Latin vegetables to Scandinavian food to Greek pastries. The shops in the Essex Street Market offer fresh, delicious, and well-priced food. Get to know the shop owners and their staff while enjoying a variety of samples on this two hour tour.
Bring a tote bag…who knows, you may be inspired to cook!
