Although I am completely distraught that it is already August, one of the many things I’m looking forward to this month is: Night Markets at the Hester Street Fair (http://www.hesterstreetfair.com/, corner of Hester and Essex)! Starting this Saturday, this treasure trove of a flea market will be open later than usual (12-10pm). Manageably small, Hester Street fair is packed with surprisingly affordable jewelry, clothing, art, and accessories. Having been to many of the flea markets around NYC, I must admit that this is where I have found myself the most tempted. Plus, an assortment of food vendors with plenty of lawn and park space nearby to sprawl out and chow down make the fair an affordable spot to grab an alfresco dinner before a night out in the LES.
