Lower East Side Pickle Day

Take a walk back in brine time with Pickle Day on the Lower East Side on Sunday, September 25th from 12-5pm! Orchard Street will once again be transformed into a pickle bazaar as we fill the LES with 20+ picklers, tasty pickled and non-pickled treats, tons of local boutiques and restaurants, live music, games, activities and the world's first ever home pickling/dancing contest.

Osaka Grub, Arancini Bros., Puebla Mexican, and Saxelby Cheesemongers from Essex Street Market will be selling their tasty pickle-themed goods. See a full list of vendors and more info at: www.pickleday.nyc.

Music at the Market

We're taking up the tempo with Latin-inspired band El Grupo Viagara which specializes in salsa, bachata and merengue. ¡Ay, caramba! Stop by the Market on Saturday, October 8th from 12-2pm to swing your hips to this fast-paced ensemble!

Talk&Taste: How Nightlife Diversified the LES

In this installment of Talk&Taste: Evenings at Essex Street Market, we look at how the bar scene has transformed much of the Lower East Side from grit to glamor, especially in the last decade. We’ll hear directly from bar owners, including Hair of the DogTop HopsLucky Jack’s and Donnybrook. They’ll share their experiences in operating bars that draw a diverse crowd of folks, and how they stayed relevant -- and dependable for their customers -- in the age of dance clubs.

Join us for this free talk, and beers to taste! The event will start with a tasting at 6:30pm and then a panel discussion from 7-8pm at Essex Street Market.

Tickets are free but RSVP is required! Register here.
