We kickoff Opening Day celebrations with special live music and our own Hester Eats food feast. As always, Hester Street Fair stays true to its roots as the site of the first outdoor market in New York City and continues the time-honored tradition of selling the old fashioned way ... face to face, neighbor to neighbor! Visitors are invited to the fair's Opening Day on Saturday, April 27th to honor old traditions, create new ones and be a part of the Hester Street Fair's growing community. "The Hester Street Fair started off as a passion project. We imagined a space where friends and neighbors in the creative community could have a place to find an audience and launch a small business," says cocreator SuChin Pak. "It has grown beyond our wildest expectations." HESTER EATS Our artisanal food selection reflects a curated mix of Hester classics and a new roster of food stars featuring more food than ever before!
