Market Line Debuts Beneath Essex Market this Friday

Posted on: November 19th, 2019 at 5:04 am by

Come Friday, Essex Crossing hits another goal. Debut of the Market Line.

There have been no official communications about the launch, but this date is two days later than participating vendors had previously communicated. (And a full season later than publicized at the Market itself.)

Once fully operational, the Market Line is to occupy 150,000 square-feet beneath three contiguous Essex Crossing developments on the south side of Delancey Street. Each is connected by tunnel passageway. Two dozen vendors are part of the inaugural, and the majority are offshoots of established local businesses.

Below is the current list of participating vendors:

Ample Hills
Cafe Grumpy
Doughnut Plant
Ends Meat
Essex Pearl
Four Sigmatic
Gouie NY
Grand Delancey Beer Hall (Neighborhood Restaurant Group)
Kuro Obi
Moon Man
Nom Wah

Pho Grand
Pickle Guys
Que Chevere (Puerto Rican cuisine)
Rebecca’s Cake Pops
Rustic Table
Schaller & Weber
SEA Food Group
Substance Vitality Bar
