I’ve written about the Hester Street Fair a couple months ago, when they had their big opening day for the season. Well, Hester Street Fair is this a cozy little street fair located in Lower East Side/Chinatown, featuring a neat selection of vendors each week, selling specialty foods, collectables, crafts, vintage goods, and more. It’s not a very big street fair, but there’s high quality vendors and the variety changes frequently. Plus, street fairs are always lots of fun, imo!
Check out this video featuring a behind-the-scenes look at the fair with co-founder SuChin Pak as part of “Windows Phone Presents the Me series“. SuChin talks about why her inspiration behind the market and what she loves about it. And if this inspires you and you happen to be around the LES this Saturday, stop by the fair for some food and shopping.

The fair’s local vendors offer an eclectic mix of vintage home accessories, gourmet food, designer fashion, and more. SuChin uses Windows Phone (phone, email, People Hub) to coordinate and communicate with vendors, along with the smart phone’s Camera and Social Media features to keep customers updated on the fair’s exciting specials, upcoming events, and more.
