For the first time in six weeks, Foxface will once again be making some of their signature sandwiches from their outpost at 80 St. Mark's Place just west of First Avenue.
Today and tomorrow, they'll be serving The Smoking Fox and Of Montreal. You can order online and schedule your preferred pickup time.
In recent weeks, Foxface stopped making their sandwiches while introducing several new offerings, including Provisions, a pantry of sorts, and the Foxface Farm Stand, where you can order farm-fresh items such as eggs, dairy, meats and honey.

A volunteer effort led by the East Village Community Coalition (EVCC) along with residents Perry Leung and Paul Gale has created an interactive map of what's open in the neighborhood during the COVID-19 crisis. (The site is designed by Zhi He of BetaNYC.)
The map includes telephone numbers, links to delivery and Instagram, and business-specific details (like local discounts and contactless pickup options). There's also information, confirmed via phone, about whether 13-plus supermarkets in the East Village accept SNAP/EBT and have immunocompromised hours/senior discounts.
The rest of the data comes from several EVG posts (like this one and this one) along with fact-checking calls and Instagram research done by the volunteers.
Moving forward, EVIMA will help the group maintain the accuracy of the existing data, and expand the number of businesses included on the map.
