Hester Street Fair

This Lower East Side flea hosts one of the best collections of food vendors in Manhattan, with more upstarts joining the fray each week. Standouts include Mighty Balls, which tops its fluffy, two-bite meatballs with fresh cheeses and globally inspired condiments, like spicy-sweet jalapeño jelly and purple cranberry-horseradish chutney. Adirondack Creamery, an upstate outfit that makes ice cream using local dairy, sells pints and small cups in flavors such as Strawberry Moon, a creamy blend of vanilla ice cream and fresh diced strawberries. And the Wonder City Coffee & Donut Bar stand—a spin-off of the Brindle Room’s morning java service—seduces caffeine-seeking grazers with bright pour-overs made with beans from Plowshare Coffee Roasters and topped with generous dollops of whipped milk. The orange-zest–infused doughnut holes use mashed potatoes in the batter to produce a sturdy crust and springy interior; they’re served with powdered sugar and gooey house-made caramel sauce.

This is was terrible. There were maybe 15 mini tents with barely any food and the clothing where more like a thrift shop sale. Not worth the travel.
