The event is free for all ages and will run December 2,9,16, and 23 from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Throughout the month, visitors can expect to enjoy a wide range of visiting NYC Public Markets vendors from around the city as well as FSM staples selling homemade food items and beverages as well as gifts and crafts for loved ones.
Throughout the month, ‘Deck the Stalls’ will feature:
“We are pleased to support the partnership between NYCEDC and the Seaport District’s Fulton Stall Market, as The NYCEDC Holiday Market brings together New York City’s diverse array of public markets in a historic district to celebrate the holidays.” said Saul Scherl, President of the New York Tri-State Region, The Howard Hughes Corporation.
“Fulton Stall Market is thrilled to be partnering with EDC to add an exciting lineup of public market vendors from across the city to its Sunday market in the Seaport District, where the city’s public markets began in the 1700’s,” said Stephen Dima, President of the Fulton Market Association, Inc., the market’s nonprofit sponsor.
“Our vendor-driven markets showcase one of the best things about New York — you can find anything here,” said Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer. “Our unique set of multicultural vendors rivals anything you’ll find anywhere else, and bringing them to the Seaport, Manhattan’s historic heart, where holiday season visitors and New Yorkers alike can enjoy them makes perfect sense.”
“Diversity remains one of New York City’s greatest strengths,” said Council Member Margaret S. Chin. “I know that the Deck the Stalls event will bring tastes from around the world to the South Street Seaport. I look forward to the community enjoying all manner of international cuisines.”
“Manhattan Community Board 1 encourages the Economic Development Corporation to continue spurring economic activity throughout the district and wishes a successful holiday season to all of vendors in the marketplace,” said Manhattan Community Board 1 Chairman Anthony Notaro.
“We are very excited to take part in the premier of Deck the Stalls,” said Christina Seid, Owner of Chinatown Ice Cream Factory. “Chinatown Ice Cream Factory will be joining Essex Market as a new vendor when it opens in its new location in 2019, and Deck the Stalls offers us a festive opportunity to take part in New York City public market community.”
The NYC Public Markets system has been committed to providing affordable space for eateries, artists, merchants and other vendors since the 1940s when Mayor LaGuardia made a dedicated effort to provide street merchants and pushcart vendors with dedicated places to do business. The three markets which are directly operated by NYCEDC are currently undergoing a city-wide revitalization effort that includes upgraded facilities, amplified programming, and a re-branding campaign as part of an updated vision for the markets, to be unveiled early next year.
