marché maman x grace’s marketplace
grace’s marketplace is an organic fruit, vegetables, and specialty groceries seller.
“led by grace balducci’s grandson, Daniel Emilio, the goal of this 6 week pop-ip is to return to our roots and pay homage to old new york; a city once defined by love, passion, and genuine hospitality.
louis balducci founded balducci’s with a push-cart as it was the easiest way for a man of little means to start his own business.
though he was short on real estate, he was long on the finest quality produce, and a resolute belief in the alchemic power of hospitality.
in combining the old-world charm of the marche maman space with the contemporary iteration of push-carts, we hope to recreate the vintage, european aesthetic of the original balducci’s & grace’s marketplace.”
