2011_3_jeffrey.jpgJeffrey's Meat Market, an original tenant of the city-owned 70-year-old Essex Street Market, has shuttered, at least for now, as butcher Jeffrey Ruhalter regroups to figure out if his business is still viable.

He tells The Lo-Down, "I’m in trouble and I’m going to rely on fate to decide the future of my store.” [The Lo-Down]
