NEW YORK - Instead of stocks it's fruits, vegetables, pizzas being traded at a new high-end market in the Financial District
City Acres Market is a 1,400 square foot food hall featuring locally-sourced and organic produce, along with big names like Artichoke Pizza, Vanessa's Dumpling House, and Juice Brothers.
It promises to serve the grab-and-go crowd, as well as those looking for something to take home.
"This is a one-stop location. You come in, you can get a snack, you can get dinner for later. We're gonna launch meal kits in about a month or so. And the best part about it is one swipe. You don't have to stand in different lines. You don't have to pay the Artichoke Pizza guys, you can gather everything together and check out once," said City Acres Executive Chef Stephen Yen.
The Financial District location is an expansion for City Acres Market.
The original is in Williamsburg.
