Handel Architects is behind the design for the new building in Essex Crossing where the Essex Street Market will move to

After nearly 80 years in the current location, Essex Street Market will move to a brand-new space on the ground floor of Essex Crossing on the southeast corner of Delancey and Essex Streets in the spring of 2019. Though in a new building, it will continue to be a public market, and all vendors will make the move. Plus, an additional 25,000 square feet will allow the market community to bring on 11 new vendors and 2 sit-down restaurants.

The new Essex Street Market will also boast a full-service demonstration kitchen and light-filled mezzanine space for events, making it one of the largest public markets in the country. Until then, Essex Street Market continues to be open for business at 120 Essex Street.
