HESTER STREET FAIR
The Hester Street Fair, located on the Lower East Side, aims to provide New Yorkers with quality goods and food in a comfortable setting. It was once the home of the largest pushcart market in the city. Now, the market is making its way to the west coast for those in Hollywood to experience the phenomenon.
On Saturday, August 11th from 11am-6pm, The Hester Street Fair Indie Design Preview will take over Hollywood. “New York’s #1 Thing To Do joins Space15Twenty and Urban Outfitters for a shopper’s trifecta.”
Who doesn’t love a three-day weekend? Occasionally throughout the year, we get to experience that amazing feeling when Sunday impersonates Saturday and we don’t have to dread Monday’s return to the daily grind. Long weekends give us the opportunity to hit up style savvy events from exhibitions to sample sales at Chelsea Market our busy schedules usually don’t allow. Besides bbqing at the beach and scoping out Fleet Week sailors—plan on celebrating your holiday weekend in style at this weekend’s most anticipated, fashion-filled events.
Last Saturday kicked off the Hester Street Fair, which hosts an incredible line of vendors displaying works of art, delectable cuisine, and hand crafted accessories.
Occupying one of the LES’s oldest pushcart markets every Saturday 10am-6pm now through the end of October, let the swell of aromas navigate you through tree-lined park and heavy foot traffic.
Spring markets are popping up all over the city now that the weather finally feels more like spring. Even the rain predicted for the rest of the week confirms that April showers were late this year but those May flowers will be here before we know it. Market places a great way to spend a weekend morning or a great idea for lunch where you’ll truly find something for everyone’s tastes. Shoppers can find an array of anything and everything at their local street market from vintage clothing to farm fresh produce and endless stalls of delicious foods. Here are four NYC Spring Markets, where foods are at the forefront of market goodies that have just opened for the season or open this upcoming weekend.
