Essex Street Market

Saturday, May 20,
12:00pm to 5:00pm
120 Essex Street
Lower East Side

After 77 years in our historic building, we're coming up on our final year at 120 Essex Street before we move across Delancey Street to the new Essex Crossing location. To celebrate all those years of business -- and many more to come in our new home! -- we're psyched to announce our Annual Birthday Block Party on Saturday, May 20th from 12pm-5pm!

Our big Block Party brings the best of Essex Street Market combined with Lower East Side favorites like Ice & Vice, The Bao Shoppe, and Petee's Pies for a feast you won't forget. We're rolling out the pushcarts and popping open the umbrellas, and truly tapping into our Market's iconic history -- May is Lower East Side History Month, after all!

Get a taste of this authentic food destination, including everything from fresh cut coconuts, to homemade tamales, to Japanese street fare. You can find us partying out on Essex Street (directly in front of the Market) swinging to live groovy tunes, too. We're also getting crazy with face-painting, temporary tattoos, and balloon-making -- perfect for families and kids-at-heart, too.
