This week I’ll make it short and sweet. For the month of December, the Essex Street Market will be open on Sundays! Who’d a thunk it??
It is a point that has been belabored by many a patron of Saxelby Cheesemongers. The Essex Market, lovely and quirky tho it may be, has up till this point been closed on Sundays. Well, this December, the market has at long last decided to bite the bullet. That’s right, no more mad Saturday scramble for cheese! Beginning this Sunday, and continuing every Sunday till New Year’s, the market will be open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm for your dinner party-ing, Sunday supper-ing, holiday entertaining needs.
Back in the day, the Essex Market, like much of the neighborhood, was closed on Saturdays. At some point in the last twenty years or so, the current switched and the day changed to Sunday. Over the past few years, customers and vendors alike have been voicing their desire to have the market open on Sundays and slowly but surely, the EDC responded!
So spread the word and come on by! The market will be full of good cheer… there’ll be live music, new cheeses, and all manner of shenanigans alla Lower East Side.
