This little stand in the Essex Street Market gives the nearby Russ & Daughters a run for their money. Instead of focusing on this neighborhood’s Jewish history of preserving fish, Nordic Preserves is catering to the city’s Scandinavian community. You can get all your Nordic supplies here and while you’re at it, you have to try the meaty, salty, and deeply smoky tour that they pull apart for you and sell by the pound.
