As in years prior, the artisan market will provide food, fashion and fun to the creative denizens of Manhattan. “We want to embrace what the Lower East side has always been for artist[s]; even if the rents continue to rise the park will always be for the people,” says the street fair team. Fair enough.
A new focus this year will be workshops, and a slew of new foodie vendors are expected to be on the scene. As in the past, there will be all sorts of themes woven throughout the weekends of operation.
The season runs from May 14 to October 29, with Saturday markets from 11AM-6PM, and special events on select Sundays. It’s located at the intersection of Essex Street and Hester Street.
