The Wonders of Street Fairs


I love street fairs, festivals, farmers markets, flea markets, and all good stuff. Therefore, whenever I come across one unexpectedly, I get uber joyful and I find myself skipping towards the crowded and rowdy road. I came across one near Lincoln Square, in New York City, a while back. I only walked around for about 10 minutes, but it was a blast. I picked up some bootleg designer shades for ten bucks (score!).

Street fairs have wonderful food. You can basically find anything from the super greasy to the super sugary. My favorites include… gyros, funnel cake, fried dough, shish kabobs, fresh squeeze lemonade, italian ice, etc. The list goes on. But, one of my ultimate favorites are sweet crepes. There is was, a la Bella Crepe! Bananas and nutella! Strawberrys! All that powdered sugary goodness!

    I love street fairs, festivals, farmers markets, flea markets too. Until reading your post and seeing those words all together I never realized their commonality to one another. Wow you gave me something random to think about!

    I was at that same fair I live in the west 70’s. I also came upon it by chance, but enjoyed a fresh falafel, a piece of grilled corn, a mango smoothie and a chocolate strawberry crepe.
