Hester Street Fair

The opening of the Hester street fair will be this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. What used to be the largest pushcart marketplace in the late-19th century, the Hester Market now offers a variety of goods yet still holds onto its historic roots. There will be food, jewelry, vintage goods and many other items for sale amongst the tents.  Checkout the Brooklyn Voyager tent for groovy vintage looks and the No Fork dessert tent for some sinful sweets.
