Back by popular demand is Spring the Hester Street Fair. Celebrating its fifth year, the fair’s returning to the two-day format. Opening weekend will again tout 60 vendors each day, of the vintage, foodie, and overall artisanal variety. Some newcomers of note include 80s and 90s thread shop La Petite Mort, the newest meat purveyor on the block Hudson & Charles, and Korean BBQ from SSAM BBQ. We’re also told that on Saturday only, Rosette’s mixologist Warren Hode will be serving up his liquid sorcery to kick off the season.

Speaking of mixing, this year the fair is mixing it up and embracing the “art-boom” of the Lower East Side, with a photography collective. Under the curation of Andrew Tyson, Chinatown artists will pay tribute to the old and new Chinatown, and showcase their work  as PHOTOCHINATOWN.

For a comprehensive list of local food vendors take your tastebuds here.
