You’re probably wondering what the heck Hester Street Fair is…?
… And as Stuart Smalley famously said, “and that’s… okay.” That’s because Hester Street Fair is a visitor from basically another world, meaning New York City. HSF graces the streets of Hollywood for a second go-round this Saturday, if you’re not already acquainted let’s talk about what’s going to happen:
“New York’s favorite outdoor market is coming to Hollywood this summer for 3 more fun filled free events one block east of the historic intersection of Hollywood Blvd. and Vine. The Hester Street Fair will be curating a collection of some of LA’s favorite artisans, craftsmen, collectors, food, brands, bloggers and music.”
Eclectic is typically the name of the game when HSF chooses fashion, crafts, and artisanal vendors, so expect to see some stuff that otherwise, like… you wouldn’t see, unless you expected to see it or something… what was THAT sentence?

But of course every street fair is judged by the food trucks in attendance, and HSF is no exception. A who’s who of LA’s best grub wagons will be on hand, if your tummy dares to rumble they’ll bust out some strong pimphand and tame it:
- Bool BBQ
- Cousins Maine Lobster
- Dosa Truck
- Gravy Train Poutinerie
- Mama Masubi
- Mandoline Grill
- Modern Bite
- Preservation Society
- and maybe a couple more…
Also… CRAFT BEER GARDEN!!!
Looks like Hester Street Fair is here at least a little longer (through summer… maybe beyond?) and I’m happy to keep it on the short list of don’t-miss gigs. If you want to know more you should really visit their website, it’s like they have completely anticipated using the WWW as a means of disseminating information, they’ve got helpful content all organized and everything.
