Last year Essex Street Market commemorated its 75th birthday by celebrating with an awesome block party. You might say we’re aiming for a tradition, because this year we’re keeping the spirit alive by hosting our second annual Block Party! This year’s Block Party will take place on Saturday, May 21st, again in celebration of the Market’s birthday month. Spend this spring afternoon outdoors! We’re taking over Essex Street to bring you the best tastes and treats our vendors have to offer — plus a few noteworthy LES establishments are joining the party.

Ice cream connoisseurs, coffee addicts, cheese heads, and spicy food lovers will all find something to indulge their palate! Participating Essex Street Market vendors include: Saxelby Cheesemongers, Osaka Grub, Puebla Mexican Food, Arancini Bros., and more. Special guest restaurants such as Cafe Katja, Grey Lady, and the guys from Ice & Vice (who will also be kindly offerring discount coupons to those who attend the LES Volunteer Fair!) is creating a specialty ice cream flavor inspired by the Market!

Grab your favorite fare, try something new, or sample them all! we’ll be open from 12am – 5pm on Saturday, May 21st outside the Essex Street Market. Grills, music, astroturf — what more could you ask for?
