Support Local

Im a huge fan of shopping small & local. In a previous post of mine I mentioned Essex Street Market located in the lower east side of Manhattan. I usually stop in to purchase my coffee from the Porto Rico Importing Co. however the market has so much more to offer than just coffee. They are a public market made up of many smaller merchants who provide a wide variety of products such as gourmet cheeses, premium cuts of meat, fresh fish and general grocery items. Its a great place to connect with and support the local community. This year marks the markets 76th anniversary and to celebrate the local merchants came together to serve up local eats for their annual block party. The wide variety of prepared food was enough to satisfy any appetite. Here are a few photos from the festivities.

If you are ever in the area pop into Essex Market and take a look around you'll be surprised with the diversity in their delicious products & offerings. There is something for everyone.
