The all-new Essex Market officially opened yesterday (after a weekend sneak preview) in its new state-of-the-art home at Essex Crossing ... across the street from its location of nearly 80 years.

There was a ribbon cutting and all that...

In total, the new Essex Market features 37 vendors, including the 21 from the previous space.

There are previews galore around the webs ... you can find coverage at Curbed ... Untapped Cities ... Eater ... Time Out ... the Lo-Down ... amNY ... and Bowery Boogie.

And here are the list of vendors (via H/T Eater!):

Prepared Foods
Peasant Stock
Davidovich Bakery
Cafe d’Avignon
Ni Japanese Deli
Nordic Preserves, Fish & Wildlife Co.
Arancini Bros.
Puebla Mexican Food
Dominican Cravings

The new Essex Market will also include two full-service restaurants. Later this year, Roni Mazumdar, whose résumé includes the Indian restaurants Rahi and Adda, will bring Dhamaka to the space.

The new Essex market is at the southeast corner of Essex and Delancey.

The market is open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

The old Essex Crossing shut its door on May 5 — that structure will eventually be razed for a high-rise residential building.

Went in on Saturday 5/11 and the place was pretty full. We spoke with some of our vendor friends and they were positively giddy over the place. Yeah, I'll KINDA miss the old market but hell, it was way past its due date.

And HEY! No mention of my barber Aminova, who seems to have renamed his shop "Czar's Grooming." (I'll have to swing by and have a chat with him about that!)
