New vendors for the Bowery Market this spring



The Bowery Market, the year-round open-air food market at 348 Bowery and Great Jones, is now down to two vendors.

The Market launched last July with five vendors... and since then, the mini outposts of Champion Coffee, The Butcher's Daughter and, most recently, Pulqueria have closed. The remaining spots are Alidoro and Sushi on Jones.

However, the sign out front notes that additional vendors will be arriving this spring...

If they have the same upscale overpriced attitude as the last vendors, no doubt the new vendors will be one-season tenants as well. Prices for the quality and genre of food served last year were astronomical. Perhaps that is geared to the visitors and nouveau-tenants of the neighborhood, but the rest of us are a bit too wary and savvy to spend $$$$ for what can be had elsewhere in the neighborhood....and you get the restaurant experience instead of the picnic in the city experience.

Uh, is one of those supposed to be "bad"?

Agreed, way too expensive, they need to just be simple, variable vendors without those prices for a shack and a stool

That corner is bullshit.

Ok five vendors, now down to two, so three empty vendors, ok, bring in thesse three vendors:

Slices, sandwiches, and soups.

There you go: simple, universal, quick, inexpensive. Who doesn't like a good slice, sandwich, or cup of soup?

Annonymous @ 10:30: If only life were that simple. Can you make pizza in those spaces? The food is only likely to be inexpensive if the rents are reasonable, which I doubt they are. Just because people like soups doesn't make it viable business. People also like coffee. The coffee place closed...

They might dress it up but this is still basically a food court and as an NYC resident that does not appeal to me at all. It's a suburban concept. I'm not a mall person and won't be eating at these. Furthermore, why would anyone pay more to get less?
