Hester Street Fair reopens this weekend

I've already gone to the Brooklyn Flea twice this Spring, and have been itching for something new to check out. Cue the Hester Street Fair, opening this weekend and running through December. We have Suchin Pak (of MTV VJ fame) to thank for this one, as well as her brother, a marketing guru, and a guy handling the business end.

According to Refinery 29's article, the fair promises to be "be 1/3 vintage, 1/3 crafts, and 1/3 food," and "curated very carefully." I'm excited to see the range of vintage items present, as well as the crafters who made the cut. It goes without saying, too, that I'll be there pigging out, so I'll have each of those 3 areas covered.

Oh, and the last time the Hester Street Fair was open? 1895. Yeah, this is gonna be serious.

What: Hester Street Fair
When: Sat. and Sunday, 10am-6pm
Season: April through December
Where: Corner of Hester and Essex
Subways: F to East Broadway or F, J, M, Z to Delancey
