Since there is much more space in the new market, there is room for even more vendors. In addition to all twenty-one of the original vendors making the move across the street, there are sixteen new vendors joining the mix. Some of the new vendors include Lower East Side Ice Cream Factory, Samesa, Don Ceviche, and Heros & Villains. There is even a vegan cheesemonger, Riverdel, opening in the new market, which will also sell specialty foods, fresh bread, and pastries.

Among the original vendors that are relocating there is the barber, who has been in business at the old market for over twenty years, Rainbo’s Fish Market, Puerto Rico Importing Company, Luna Brothers Fruit Plaza, and Davidovich Bakery Shop.
