Rigor Hill Market is open

The folks behind One White Street have opened Rigor Hill Market, an outlet for its baked goods, sandwiches and produce from the farm that supplies the restaurant, in the former Clementine space at 227 West Broadway. And if you have enjoyed their farm stand set up on Tuesdays, you will love the market — it’s the same thing only better and every day.

So far there’s a soup, sandwich and salad (see prices below), quiche, muffins, cookies and breads, plus coffees, lots of produce and some packaged foods like granola. Stay tuned for pastries from the “laminated dough” department (croissants and all things with flaky layers), products from the Hudson Valley and then a global selection of chef Austin Johnson’s favorites: salts from Alaska, things in tins from France.

“We are super stoked,” Austin said. “We’ll let it evolve and see how it shakes out. If we continue to do what we do on Tuesdays, it will be a big win.”

Rigor Hill Farm, which they started in Ghent, NY, for their own menu next door, will be producing all year long — they have a 10,000-square-foot greenhouse. And they will start to ramp up the bread production. (Even on day two, they already know how to wrap it — and I love that it is in waxed brown paper with fabric tape. That’s the gluten free loaf, below.) And partner and sommelier Dustin Wilson (who also is a partner at Verve Wine) recently got a liquor license from CB1 for the market. So expect something fun along those lines as well.

PS: I happened to mention that my pal and I were on our way to Korin on Warren Street for the upcoming TC gift guide, and Austin said that Korin was the first stop he made when he moved to New York City a couple decades ago. Stop two was 11 Madison Park, where he got a job.



  1. What’s that delicious looking seedy loaf? Got a Nordic influence.

  2. The seedy loaf is their gluten free bread. I have had the fortune of getting to know these folks over the past six months, and can’t speak more highly of them. Sarah (the opening manager of Rigor Hill Market (RHM)) goes above and beyond to ensure the quality and freshness of the products, and where else are you able to buy produce all while having the opportunity to consult a Michelin starred chef on what to do with it. Personally, their salad is phenom. — many also love their new turkey sandwich they just launched.

  3. Thrilled to have the Rigor Hill farm stand every day of the week! The produce is fresh, of the highest quality, and includes unique, as well as familiar varieties. I stopped by the Market today for my first lunch (the vegan cauliflower sandwich) and a latte, which were both delicious! Such a great addition to the neighborhood. Can’t wait to see what else they will have in store.

    • I’m sure it’s better than a grocery store, but there are many greenmarkets around the city that offer higher quality produce at more reasonable prices from farms that have been operating and perfecting their craft for decades. They also know what they’re selling – unlike the folks at Rigor Hill, who I’m sure are very nice, but are not farming experts.

      • Curious where these greenmarkets are in Tribeca with higher quality and lower prices. Please name names.

        • Pity I didn’t see this until now. The city has ~50 greenmarkets on specific days in virtually every neighborhood, including TriBeCa. I find the best selection at Grand Army Plaza’s in Brooklyn on Saturday’s, but there are many (many!) closer to lower manhattan (full list here: https://www.grownyc.org/files/gmkt/map.pdf). And yes, prices are better, which is no surprise since Rigor Hill’s have to cover expensive NYC rent. Shop there if you want, but just understand that it’s not a commercial or tenured farm.
