The Hester Street Fair folded up its tents last month, but this weekend it’ll pop back up near the South Street Seaport– with bells on! The folks behind the seasonal bazaar are opening their holiday market on Black Friday. Trust us, it’ll be way better than macing someone for a Nintendo Classic.
Here’s a rundown of what’ll be on offer, directly from the organizers.
The Hester Street Fair Holiday market at the Seaport will feature unique gifts of all kinds including wonderfully curious children’s books from Home Grown Books, fashionable sneakers you will not see anywhere else from Triesti, bow ties from Vivid, whimsical and creatively inspired socks you can gift all your relatives from Jimmy Lion, a postcard stand from the best handmade card vendors and delicious sweets and packaged foods from Macaron Parlour, Eat Chic Chocolates, Stagg Jams, Elements Truffle, Rescue Chocolate and more.
You can see more offerings over at Hester’s Pinterest page– um, a handmade DJ Khaled Valentine? A Rick Ross Christmas card?
Even if it’s that time of year when Drake says “Happy Hanukkah,” Hester isn’t giving up on the outdoor vibe just yet. On Saturdays and Sundays, the courtyard of its seasonal location will host live music and food from Rudy’s Deli, Crepe Refinery, Brooklyn Baked and Fried, Joey Bats, and Awkward Scone. Given that Seaport Smorgasburg has closed for the season, this should fill a void.
Hester Street Fair’s 2016 Holiday Market open Nov. 25 to Dec. 24, daily from 11am-8pm, at 117 Beekman St., South Street Seaport District.
