A winterized Bowery Market, now down to 3 vendors
[Photos from Saturday]
The Bowery Market opened to great fanfare this past July ... the open-air food market at 348 Bowery and Great Jones was billed as a year-round destination. This past Friday, workers finally winterized the space that features several quick-serve kiosks with several stools at each food stand...
The Market opened with five vendors — Alidoro, Champion Coffee, The Butcher's Daughter, Pulqueria and Sushi on Jones... and at the moment, they are down to three.
A note on the The Butcher's Daughter website says they are closed for the winter. They shut down last fall with "closed for renovations" notices. This coincided with a visit by the DOH, who ordered the restaurant closed for several "critical violations," including "Food contact surface not properly washed, rinsed and sanitized after each use and following any activity when contamination may have occurred."
Meanwhile, Champion Coffee has not been open in recent weeks... paper covers the windows...
The space looks to have been cleared out... and the Bowery Market is no longer listed as a location on the Champion Coffee website...
Meanwhile, for the remaining vendors, the listed hours are daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sushi on Jones received a positive review from the Times back in the fall. And we've heard from several people who say they like the sandwiches at Alidoro.
The address had been without a full-time tenant since Downtown Auto & Tire left in April 2012.
