Formaggio Essex Market

120 Essex Street, near Rivington
New York, NY 10002

To us, the sustainable production is the result of having a respect for the environment and community that are the source of the ingredients and materials that make up the product. This respect is manifested in terms such as organic (whether certified or not), biodynamic, integrated pest management and sustainable. We are proud that many of the exceptional products we offer are produced in this manner and we hope to continue to support artisan producers both in the U.S. and abroad.

“I’m a 3rd Generation Baozi/Mantou maker. My grandpa used to sell baozi and mantou in Taiwan so we’ve come full circle. Except, this time around, I wanted to improve on the old prototype. Gone are the MSG and “color treated” meats you see in Chinatown. I use Niman Ranch antibiotic/hormone free pork and Certified Angus Skirt Steak. Our Guerrilla Cooking Methods are also 90% energy efficient and remove a lot of barriers to entry for young, independent, small-businesses.”… Read the rest
