One of the best outdoor markets in New York City is getting a welcome extension this summer. Beginning May 31, Hester Street Fair will stretch itself along the Seward Park Promenade on Essex Street with about 28 yet-to-be-named new vendors. This is in addition to the fest's current area around the gates on Hester Street. The vendors in the new area will rotate week to week, but it'll be reminiscent of past lineups, so think everything from Melt Bakery's delicious ice cream sandwiches to Astridland's bold, minimal, made-in-NYC dresses. The opening weekend will include live music and giveaways.
