Daily Candy: "Some of our favorite fashion and food vendors". Hester Street Fair is the place to go on the Lower East Side of NYC for good vintage clothes, jewelry, bikes, furniture, crafts, art, flowers and much more. Come by and see why the NY...more
I went for the Brasil Fest.
As we enter the area there were checking I.D. And placing a green wrist tag on people to be able to buy alcoholic beverages. Nice.
The area is not too large, it’s enclosed, if one suffers of claustrophobia don’t...More
I read about the Hester Street Fair in Timeout Magazine and it seemed appealing, especially since I wanted to try something different on this trip to NYC.
The Fair was much better on paper than in person: only about 20 vendors and that includes the...More
Maybe my expectations were too high?
It’s not a “street” fair; about half the size of a basketball court with approximately only 20 stalls in the whole area. In 10 mins of browsing its all over. I had planned a whole day and had to...More
This is a nice perk for the neighborhood. The local artisans and food vendors seem to have a following. It is relatively small scale, maybe 15 vendors total. We made it a destination and it wasn't worth the cab ride.
My husband and I were in the area so we decided to check it out. Hester Street Fair is very small. When we went, there were about 8-10 vendors and most of them were selling goods rather than food. We did not check the website...More

There were jewellery stalls,food and...More
Hester Street Fair is held on Saturdays 11:00 until 6:00. During my vacation I went to a little bit of trouble to get there because I love New York Street Fairs! There was hardly anything there and it was so small. It didn't even take...More
Stopped by here in October after reading about it online. Expected many more vendors, so it was disappointing. There were only about a dozen, if that, inside what looked like a school yard. We were done seeing it in 15 minutes.
We ended up getting...More
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
