The East Village Independent Merchants Association (EVIMA) and FABnyc have joined forces to bring greater awareness and appreciation to small- and immigrant-owned businesses in the East Village.

● Bonnie Slotnick Cookbooks, 28 E. Second St. (between Second Avenue and the Bowery)
Downtown Yarn, 45 Avenue A (between Third Street and Fourth Street)
