The Hester Street Fair has decided to venture out of the Lower East Side and move beyond its namesake street. Beginning this weekend, the fair will introduce a Thursday night outpost in the Hotel Eventi's courtyard that will focus on the food portion of the fair. (Think Melt Bakery, Pies 'n' Thighs and Little Muenster.) Retail shoppers will also get a treat, though, because The Hester Store is headed to 835 Sixth Avenue.
There's no opening day as of yet, but WWD reports that it will carry Freemans Sporting Goods, along with "a bevy of other brands, designers and artists." Though that part of town isn't as exciting as the LES, it'll certainly be more convenient when it rains.
