Food Hall Showdown!

Celebrate one of New York’s most historic eating destinations with the Komeeda community! Essex Street Market vendors will be competing for the best bite of pickle-themed food at this one-time experience, which means YOU win! Essex Street Market has been serving the community for over 75 years, and will be moving to a new building across the street this fall. Help us give their current home at 120 Essex Street a big send-off, and get a taste of the market’s offerings with a pickle twist -- a tradition true to the Lower East Side.
