This Weekend at the Seaport: Hester Street Fair’s Vinyl, Artisanal Goods

The Hester Street Fair has temporarily transplanted from, well, Hester Street to The Seaport this year, which is good news for us if not for haters of obsolete names. This weekend, you can score sweets, treats and other artisanal goodies soundtracked to all-day live DJs spinning vinyl — a  perfect entry into fall.

On Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., DJs from DutyFreeRecords Mobile Record Shop (NYC’s first mobile record shop) and Full Effects Print will be spinning and selling records, so you can jam out and add to your collection at the same time. There’ll also be a slew of vendors hawking goods. 

From the Hester Street Fair:

  • CMarty’s Jerk | Come back for another one of his famous jerk Bahn Mis and save room for the incredible nachos
  • World’s Wurst | A husband and wife owned restaurant in Greenwich Village serving delicious Oktoberfest classics along with some extra tasty sides.

The event is outdoors and it’s recommended you have a mask on you for when social distancing isn’t possible. Stay tuned for more from the Hester Street Fair — later this month, there’ll be a spooky Halloween market at The Seaport.
