New Essex Market opens on Lower East Side

For nearly 80 years, fresh food and local flavor has been for sale at the Essex Street Market near the corner of Delancy Street along Essex Street.

As of Monday morning, times have changed and moved down the block.

The new Essex Market has opened across the street. It's three times the size of the original location.

The city-owned facility is one of several markets designed to increase access to food and business opportunities.
