The Hester Street Fair Is Headed to the Seaport

The Hester Street Fair is synonymous with, well, Hester Street, where it’s been held seasonally since 2010. Last year it lost its lease, but this sad story has a happy ending: the fair will soon have a temporary second life at The Seaport!

Starting Labor Day Weekend, you’ll be able to pay a visit to the Hester Street Fair on select dates in September and October. 

Time Out New York says:

On September 4 and 5, the classic Hester Street Fair market with music by Wade & Sammy will kick it off, followed by its popular Vintage Day on September 18, another market with all-day vinyl music on October 9 and a Halloween-themed market on October 30.

David Komurek, the owner of the fair, said the forced hiatus was a surprise so he and Janine Ciccone, the manager of the fair, had to work around the clock to find a new home.

“Losing our lease was totally unexpected especially at a time when we felt the Hester Street Fair embodied and supported the neighborhood more than ever,” he told us. “It stopped us dead in our tracks and hit us financially.”

The fair is still on the hunt for another location — hopefully they’ll be able to find one close to us!
