Hester & Essex Sts.
Saturday, September 1, free admission, 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
The Hester Street Fair continues on September 1 at the Saturday Street Market with the fourth annual Lobster and Beer festival, pairing the elegant crustacean with frothy brews. Taking place from 11:00 to 6:00, the event features lobster rolls from DownEast Lobstah and Lobster Joint alongside four-dollar Old Blue Last pale ale. The vendor lineup also includes Aimee McLaughlin, Feels NYC, Gigi’s Mimos, Handprint NYC, Hatzumomo, Janie Bakes, Joe’s Apron’s, Katmama Accessories, Manju, MassPop, Megan Phillips Collection, NYC Botanica, Ovando Salvi, Phyla, Popped, POPTEA, Rollie, Rosey Jamaican, Stax, Tribeca Trinkets, What We Eat, WHAMMEES, and Village Psychic. Last year some seven thousand people devoured the lobster until there was none left, so get there early if you need a late-summer fix.
