The market on First Avenue between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place expects to reopen on Friday, April 3, after closing after the business day yesterday.
Here's part of a more detailed message via their Instagram account:
East Village, we love you so much. But this week the best way to serve you each is to close.
We also became aware that two confirmed cases of COVID-19 spent time in our little shop.
We've decided to take a week to air it out, monitor the health of our brave little staff and regroup.
No one is handling this perfectly, but we're hoping that we're handling it well enough.
