Amid slumping sales, the Fulton Stall Market has left South Street Seaport, but the open-air bazaar hopes to reopen elsewhere in the area.

The food market’s manager, Amy Weeks, said she is in talks with Seaport developer Howard Hughes Corporation to relaunch at another location nearby for the long run. Fulton Stall Market, located along South Street every Sunday, took a summer break in August with plans to return in the fall. But it suffered from competition with hipper, “curated” vendors at nearby SmorgasBar and struggled to maintain sales after five years in the spot, opting to shutter last month.

Howard Hughes Corporation hopes to demolish the Pier 17 mall, which is part of the Seaport, in October, in order to build a glass structure set to house high-end retailers and eateries.
