The Market Hub, a pivotal component of the Pier 78 expansion in Midtown Manhattan, aspires to be a vibrant marketplace at its core. Guided by the tenets of a circular economy, our retailers exclusively source their materials from a unified ferry and truck network, replacing multiple suppliers. This collaborative approach extends to a centralized back-of-house center, streamlining storage, processing, recycling, and biodegradation to significantly curtail waste.

Market visitors enjoy a diverse shopping experience, with options ranging from mobile ordering to self-check kiosks, in-person ordering, free seating, and formal dining. This versatility optimizes space utilization while catering to various preferences.

We actively participate in the “Too Good to Go” initiative, reducing food waste by offering surplus vendor products at reduced prices. This combats waste, supports the local community and provides budget-friendly choices for visitors. Moreover, our commitment to sustainability extends to rigorous biodegradation practices, ensuring responsible disposal of organic materials, which positively contribute to the environment. Accessibility is also a fundamental part of our ethos, with wheelchair ramps, accessible restrooms, and tactile signage enhancing inclusivity for all.

Through these concerted efforts, we steadfastly pursue a circular economy, envisioning a resilient marketplace that prioritizes community welfare, convenience, and sustainability in the future.
