“The Spanish Market”
My family has been going for years to Moore Street Market, one of Brooklyn’s oldest indoor markets serving East Williamsburg and the surrounding neighborhoods for close to 70 years. One of its most faithful patrons was my grandmother, who, after emigrating from Puerto Rico to Brooklyn, and later central Jersey, would always make the trip to Moore Street Market in Brooklyn. It was her number one source to get good quality and often hard-to-find Spanish foods and products.

“Essex Street Market is just that kind of place, where the Lower East Side of past and present come together seamlessly.”
Come to La Marqueta this Saturday for the Clothing and Textile Recycling Event organized by GrowNYC! A great opportunity to donate old clothing and textiles—a portion of which will go to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts on the Lower East Side. There will also be Thanksgiving produce bags for sale, and a turkey-day inspired cooking demonstration by Harlem Seeds! See flyers for more information and go to facebook.com/newyorkcitymarkets.
Essex Street Market is open for business on the Lower East Side at 120 Essex Street. Come support the market post-Sandy!
Hours: Monday - Saturday 8 AM to 7 PM
Sundays - 10 AM to 6 PM

Yesterday, Mayor Bloomberg announced winners of the Public Design Commission’s 30th Annual Awards for Excellence in Design, celebrating the highest design standards for public projects. The Mayor hosted the awards ceremony at the Spruce Street School followed by a reception at New York by Gehry on Spruce Street in Lower Manhattan.
We’re pleased to announce that CityPoint Retail Facility and Dekalb Market in Downtown Brooklyn were among the 10 winning projects. This is a project of NYCEDC, Acadia Realty Trust, and Washington Square Partners, as well as Cook + Fox Architects, Lee Weintraub Landscape Architecture, and ORE Design + Technology. Check out all the winning projects on NYC.gov.
“These awards are our city’s celebration of the best and brightest examples of public design. We are committed to making first-rate design a priority in every project in all five boroughs. That allows our public projects to both improve the quality of life for New Yorkers and exists as sources of pride for our city.”—Mayor Bloomberg
