The dreary weather yesterday didn't stop the crowds and more than a few press members to descend on the newly revamped La Marqueta at Park Avenue and 115th. Officially starting at 4:00 PM, the Open House didn't really pick up until around 4:30 PM and the above photos show some of the action that was happening at East Harlem's historic market beneath the train underpass. There are a few great local farmers on hand, SpaHa Cafe, Urban Garden Center, regional wines and great old timers such as the salted fish vendor in the renovated market place that really shown its potential last night. Here's a real chance to have a solid indoor market uptown so everyone should make it out to this one and help support the local businesses. La Marqueta is open for most of the week except for Friday & Sunday so make a point to drop by and see what the excitement is about. We will have more photos up on our Facebook site this afternoon: LINK
