Market NYC Opens New Outpost Today at 290 Mulberry Street

​Market NYC first announced its return to Little Italy just before Christmas. Two months after its holiday pop-up onsite, the third city location at 290 Mulberry Street is a go. It opens to the public at noon today.

This week was one of final preparations. The lettering was installed; window treatments were deposed to reveal the rustic quarters. Indeed, wooden booths and ornaments dot the spartan space. It basically looks like a bunch of skids attached to the floor.

As previously reported, the ten-year lease at 290 Mulberry is a pseudo-homecoming for Market NYC. It was just over four 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). The gossip at the time, while ancient history now, suggested that shady dealings were behind the jettison.

Before Market NYC laid claim to 290 Mulberry, the ground level was perennially vacant. Permanent tenants were elusive, and only the seasonal Nirvanna Designs really operated here.
