Pickles & Pastries: The Evolution of NYC’s Public Markets

Market purveyors of yore would likely not even recognize today’s glitzy food halls and “lifestyle markets.” Yet institutions like Essex Street Market have bridged the gap between history’s street peddlers and modern-day food vendors. Who ultimately determines such markets’ future and why should we care if they disappear forever?

New Amsterdam Market founder Robert LaValva shares his expertise on the past, present, and future of public markets in a dialogue with Anne Saxelby, owner of Saxelby Cheesemongers.
