New York's Most Historic Public Market

For over 100 years, Essex Market has served as a meeting place for the Lower East Side community. We are a public market made up of many smaller vendors who pride themselves on getting to know their customers.

Our friendly vendors offer a unique array of products in a welcoming, community-oriented environment. You can be on a first-name basis with your butcher, cheesemonger, grocer, and fishmonger.

And if you're in the mood to nosh, our prepared-food merchants and restaurants can satisfy any appetite.


Keeping the Lower East Side Fresh Since 1940

Our vendors all have an individual story and distinctive personality that add flavor to their already delicious offerings. These are the people that give a true and genuine neighborhood feel to our historic public market.
