SATURDAY: Sketch the Essex Street Market


This event was planned by Shawne Cooper for 
this Saturday, February 17, 2024

We'll be sketching inside Essex Market

The 37,000-square-foot space houses 

loads of sketch-able shops,

tons of food vendors, groceries, and more.

We know that our city changes all the time. It’s exciting when new spaces are created and a bit sad when old places close.  Shawne has shared that the Essex Street Market, a  venerable sketching location, will be closing.

Essex Market has been a fixture on the Lower East Side since 1818.  The city-owned food hall and market went from a dingy, low-ceilinged building to a state-of-the-art, award-winning-architect-designed space that has floor-to-ceiling windows, an impossibly high sloped ceiling, and all-new kitchens and stalls. It’s three times the size and even has a shortened new name: Essex Market.


What:  We'll be sketching at the Essex Market.  We'll be indoors with the option to explore outside if it feels warm enough.

Where:  The Essex Market is located at 88 Essex St,  it's easy to get there. Let's linger for a while by the main door when we first arrive. We'll be using What'sApp to stay in touch.

When:  We're starting at 10 AM on SATURDAY, February 17th.  Sleeping late?   Come anyway - we'll be there.

How:  Take the F or M train to Delancey St. / Essex St.  The market is across the street.  (see map below)

Lunch:   We'll break for lunch together at 12:30 PM

Afternoon:   More sketching

Show and TellAt 3 PM we'll get together, probably in the eating area to share our drawings, tell stories and talk about art supplies
