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!

Talk&Taste: Reviving Traditional Jewish Foods

In this edition of Talk&Taste: Evenings at Essex Street Market, we’re exploring how producers are reviving some of NYC’s oldest -- and most guarded -- Jewish food traditions, and bringing them back into the spotlight. We’ll hear from Rick Field, owner of Rick’s Picks; David Zablocki, co-owner of Kossar’s; and Naama Shefi, founder of the Jewish Food Society, which aims to preserve and revitalize Jewish food traditions. 

We’ll begin the evening at 6:30pm with a small tasting of traditional Jewish foods. Our panel discussion will go from 7-8pm. RSVP is free but required!

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 Glenn Roth, whose rocking tunes will get you grooving while you shop!
