There was a ribbon cutting and all that...

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.
