The Essex Street Market May Have To Move

Redevelopment may force the 71 year old Essex Street Market to move within the next few years. Viable options will be presented at the next community board meeting on Wednesday. The NY Times has the full story…

“For the merchants, the prospect elicits an array of reactions, from dismay to denial to ambivalence. Dismay, as felt by Anne Saxelby, of the much-feted Saxelby Cheesemongers: “It you have a vibrant, community-oriented marketplace that fell on hard times and is now going great, it just doesn’t seem like something you want to mess with.”
