One of the reasons we say that the Hester Street Fair is like no other in New York is, first and foremost, because they call upon their neighbors to make something new happen every week! Their rotating roster of vintage, food, and work alongside their mainstays to give you a fresh selection from week to week – and this weekend, they’ve all pulled together to work with a theme we can all get behind: moms! In honor of all the women in our lives, the fair is hosting the Susan G. Komen Foundation's Bake for Hope sale
, a nation wide bake sale that works from coast to coast to raise money for breast cancer research.
Many of our vendors will be donating proceeds and creating products just for the big day. Some special things to look out for are DB Sweets’ special pink cupcakes (donated to the bake off), La Newyorkina’s ultra popular popsicles will come in Guava (with proceeds going to the Susan G. Komen Fund), and Pain D'Avignon is baking a special pecan Cranberry Chocolate bread just for mom.
Check out some of the other new vendors the Fair’s got in store this weekend, and our photos from what we spotted there last week!
