The new Essex Street Market arrives today. Its new home inside luxe development Essex Crossing — at 88 Essex St., at Delancey Street — houses 21 legacy vendors, 18 new stalls, and two full-service restaurants, and it also comes with a sleek rebranding. Now, it’s known simply as Essex Market.

Shopsin’s, Arancini Bros., and Davidovich Bakery are all reopening today inside the light-filled new construction, while new vendors include a Chinatown Ice Cream Factory dubbed Lower East Side Ice Cream Factory, shawarma stand Samesa from Eli and Max Sussman, LES Moroccan restaurant Zerza, and Thai-style chicken spot Eat Ghai.

The full-service restaurants are not yet open, one being all-day Indian restaurant Dhamaka from the Adda and Rahi team, while the other full-service space is not yet leased. The full vendor list is below.

The city-owned food hall and market has long anticipated this move across the street from 120 Essex St. It’s a part of the huge new development Essex Crossing, which sprawls across multiple blocks and 1.65 million-square-feet. There’s retail, office space, apartments, and parks, in addition to lots of food. Later this summer, a second, developer-owned food hall will open underneath Essex Street Market, dubbed the Market Line, with restaurants from the Wildair and Veselka teams.

Take a look at the full vendor list below, and stay tuned for photos of the space and more this week.
