The always enjoyable Hester Street Fair is back, kicking off this weekend on April 28th! The fair returns for its third year in a row with an even more enticing selection of artisan shopping, delicious fresh food and original art.  This year’s opening party will include danceable tunes from synth-pop band Bubbles, so guests can eat, drink and dance in the new season.

The once abandoned Hester Street lot was reenlivened three years ago by MTV News correspondent Suchin Pak, who created the fair to reflect the dynamic energy of the Lower East Side. Pak is known for reporting on environmental and social change, so bringing an experience of farm fresh food and indie designers to a park on the Lower East Side seemed only natural to her.

This year’s fair will continue its usual deliciousness, with handmade ice cream from Ample Hills Creamery, an outpost of new restaurant Sons of Essex, Prohibition Bakery’s adult cupcakes, and Pies and Thighs joining the team this year. Vintage lovers can pick up one of a kind jewelry from Estate Jewels by George & Raf, as well as clothing from Dolls and Robots. This year’s fair will even include a booth by Compass Yoga, where you can get a posture assessment and learn some poses for $1.
