The Essex Market – A Day in the LifeDirected by Lisa Pharoah & Roger Ingraham
This short documentary is about my relationship with the Essex Market on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. I moved to New York in 2019 and this was my local food market, but I began to appreciate it was so much more than that. Relationships slowly developed with the vendors during the pandemic and they gradually turned into friendships. The Market is a vibrant and diverse community that, as an English immigrant woman, began to feel like home. I felt compelled to celebrate the community I found there.
