Hester Street Fair Opens This Weekend

Not sure it’ll look like this, exactly, but there should be a crowd this weekend, weather permitting, at the new Hester Street Fair (where Hester St. ends at Essex).

This plot of land, part of the Seward Co-Op and smashed between the tennis courts and Seward Park Playground, has been empty a long time. It’s been repaved, new gates have been constructed, and this weekend is the coming out party for what organizers hope will be a new neighborhood institution.

the Hester Street Fair focuses on curated local goods, food and most importantly, highlights the vibrant spirit of the community.

Check it out on Saturday and Sunday, 10-6. And let us know in our bulletin board what you find.
