Sugar Sweet Sunshine, Roni-Sue’s, and Exit 9 Gift Shop Headed to Essex Street Market
What’s a week on the Lower East Side without some update on vendors for the new Essex Street Market?
Today brings news of three local vendors to take up stalls inside the 24-story tower at 115 Delancey Street. That’s in addition to the roster of twenty-four currently making the journey next fall.
Dessert stalwart Sugar Sweet Sunshine (on Rivington Street since 2003) joins Exit 9 gift shop spinoff Local Line (products made by locals) and the second coming of Roni-Sue’s Chocolates (which previously occupied space in the original building).
Below is more on the timeline from the official media advisory:
This fall, current Essex Street Market vendors will move to the new Essex Market, which sits across from the existing Delancey Street location. In order to ensure continuity in operations, the current market will stay open until the new location opens to the public. The new facility at 115 Delancey will triple the size of current market offerings, occupying approximately 37,000 square feet between the ground and second floors within Essex Crossing.
The new Essex Market will feature two full-service restaurants, a demonstration kitchen, and extended hours for late night shopping. It will also continue to prioritize providing affordable food products for the Lower East Side’s diverse communities.
