Fresh Bites: Free Cooking & Nutrition Workshops

Every Wednesday starting at 10:30am, join us for free cooking and nutrition workshops at the Market! Learn how to make delicious, affordable meals using fresh fruits and vegetables. These classes are free and open to the public (no advance registration necessary!), and also translated into Spanish.

Each week we'll demonstrate how to make a different recipe, such as sweet potato chili and beet-and-carrot slaw. Participants who attend the full workshop will receive a $2 "Market Money" coupon that can be redeemed for fruits and vegetables at the Market. Join us every Wednesday for a new recipe and lesson!

Open House New York

Open House New York provides audiences with access to a wide range of buildings and institutions throughout the City, some of which are typically closed to the public. This year Essex Street Market is participating in Open House New York Weekend, an annual event that unlocks the doors to NYC's most important buildings. We'll be offering tours on Saturday & Sunday, October 14-15, at 12pm and 1:30pm. Simply come by the Market to join one of these tours and get an inside look at the Market's history!

Music at the Market

Join us for live Music at the Market! On the Second Saturday  of every month we feature a different performance. This month we welcome guitarist David Galvez, who won us over with his smooth Spanish tunes. Be sure to stop by between 11am & 1pm to see him live!
