Beginning in the 1990s, trendy boutiques and chic designers moved into the area, and NoLita has since acquired a reputation as a prime retail destination. The main shopping activity clusters along Mulberry and Elizabeth Street.
Try on a pair of retro shoes at Cydwoq New York, take home a French designer skirt from Lilith, and finish your grocery shopping at Met Food, all while strolling down Mulberry Street. If new and upcoming styles happen to be your scene, Creatures of Comfort on Mulberry Street stands as the bohemian-fashion oasis. Small and growing fashion lines from around the world abound in this spacious boutique, such as the avant-garde statement pieces from MM6 and Cosmic Wonder. Complete your wardrobe with both men's and women's clothing and accessories, and always stay ahead of the fashion scene by checking out the selection of exclusive style books and periodicals.
Furnish your apartment and home while shopping for trendy jewelry at Love Adorned. Nestled on Elizabeth Street, this treasure trove of baubles and trinkets from acclaimed artisans allows you to set your own fashion trends. Spruce up your dinner table with one of the eye-catching, billowing cloaks that hang from the shop walls, or plant a little rustic character in your apartment with vintage-styled porcelain milk bottles.
Finding fresh and organic food in NoLita is quite easy, and you can expect handmade cheeses and cured meats from any of the Italian-style food vendors in the area. The closest farmers market, Union Square
Greenmarket, is located a mile north of NoLita.
