East Village Organic now closed for the next week

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.

I stocked up at EVO last Sunday, 3/22, and they were doing a great job of limiting entry to the store, providing gloves, and reminding everyone about sanitary practices. Plus, their shelves were fully stocked. It was about as pleasant a shopping experience as one could hope for in these stressful times. I really hope the staff is OK, and that they reopen soon.
