After a year’s delay, Union Market has opened at the corner of Avenue A and East Houston Street, as anticipated yesterday. Around 2:30 p.m., Marko Lalic, a partner in the operation, made the rounds as shoppers and gawkers taste-tested olive oils, perused the bountiful cheese section, and admired a baked goods area overflowing with rolls and baguettes.

Last night, The Times revealed that the Brooklyn brand’s first Manhattan outpost would feature a prepared-foods department directed by Katy Sparks, the chef of the future Tavern on the Green, with “dishes like Dominican pork roast, porchetta-style leg of lamb, brisket meatloaf, roasted cauliflower and (since this is a market from Brooklyn) sautéed kale.”
