Summer Kickoff Outdoor Celebration!

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Join Essex Market for a Summer Kickoff event featuring outdoor entertainment for the Lower East Side! They’ll be outside on Broome Street directly behind the market for some community-wide fun, featuring: Live Music by Chino Pons & Yotoco, Kids Activities from LES Ecology & The Pushchart Presents, and Raffles for Market Gift Boxes. Grab your favorite food and drink from market vendors and have a good time!

All kids' activities will take place on the sidewalk outside Essex Market (on Broome St.). Social distancing guidelines will be adhered to and there will be designated spaces for kids to participate. Essex Market appreciates your patience if a spot is not immediately available for your child, and you can enjoy live music and outdoor eating until one opens up!

There will be two areas for activities:

Seed ball making-- make your own wildflower seed ball and plant anywhere for a burst of flowery color! Supplies will be provided.
Tie dying-- there will be naturally-made dyes and all the supplies on hand. YOU bring the materials! T-shirts, hats, bandanas, socks, etc. to tie dye with the specialists.

SNAP recipients receive $6 voucher to purchase food inside the market - valid on 6/26 only!
