Founded in 2010 by three Lower East Side locals, the Hester Street Fair has set the standard for what a market is, while transcending the notion and meaning of a typical “food court” or “flea” to become a one-of-a-kind curious, cultural and community gathering, drawing from the diversity of the neighborhood and New York City at large.
Supporting charitable partners is an integral part of the Hester Street Fair. We seek out charities to align with specific events, for instance, Lower East Side Girls Club was part of Girl Power Day, Green Beetz was part of Grub Street Food Festival, and some we support because our community came to use to help their cause. We will continue integrating charitable partners in our market to help make our local and global community better.
Hester Street Fair is located in the heart of the Lower East Side and housed on the historic grounds of New York City’s largest pushcart market at the turn of the 19th century. Hester Street Fair, currently in its 9th Season, pays homage to those roots by bringing together a collection of NYC’s best vendors in a bustling outdoor marketplace.
