New York – Canal Street Market seeks to redefine the traditional street market by offering the community a new lifestyle experience.
Property developer Philip Chong created the initiative when he noticed a lack of retail-facing concepts on Canal Street that catered for and spoke to the people that live and work in the area.
Now Canal Street Market houses a mix of 23 artist and brand booths with a strong emphasis on artisanal, locally produced items as well as a large newsstand and coffee shop curated by Office magazine and an indoor garden.
Brands such as Fox Fodder Flowers, Leibal Homewares and Mast Brothers Chocolate are part of the scheme. In addition, a 100-square-feet glass-enclosed concept space called the Fishbowl will also host a sponsored artists residency, which begins with Emily Johnston live sketching and showcasing her photography project.
