The New Essex Market at Essex Crossing

Recommended Posts

The new Essex Market, replacing the old, in the process of being torn down Essex St. Market, is quite wonderful. And 2 minutes from my apartment, which I guess makes me biased. And we now have both this and Trader Joe's within a stone's throw.

 

I'm a regular for these breads.

One of the two rye breads on offer at Pain d'AVignon; this is their caraway rye, while the other is a sourdough dark rye. I like both.

 

They don't have a slicer, so when I buy a loaf of bread which is going to be used for toast or sandwiches, I slice it all and freeze it when I get home (after eating a few slices with some good salted butter).

Noted, well.  Thanks!

 

I mean, I live really far from there, but it's not like I don't make routine pilgrimages to deep Queens.  I'll check it out.

Where are you located, and what do you like in deep Queens?

I live way uptown (you can see Yankee stadium from my east windows). 

 

I may have overstated the "deep".  I go to Patel Bros.  I go to Corona for tortillas.   **altho -- I admit, one can get really very good and fresh packaged tortillas up here.  But if you want immediately fresh ones . . . .  I found some micro neighborhood of Colombian foods when I was on the hunt for some more of a Colombian bean that I had bought in Pittsburgh.  [Now that I'm in the RG bean club, I don't really branch out to other beans anymore because it's just too many beans for my household.  It's one of the downsides of the club -- I kind of miss the wonder of Goya's aim at micro-neighborhoods]. 

 

I go to Flushing.  I go to that nabe which is "Little Egypt", I don't actually remember it's map-name.   

 

Honestly, I think the eating in Queens is mind-boggling.  And mind-bogglingly cheap.  The drinking . . . nah.  But the eating?  I like Queens.
