  • Come get awesome macarons from me =).
  • small but fun! go here hungry as most of the booths are food-related
  • Weekly neighborhood street fair in the Lower East Side with food stalls, local vendors and more. A great Saturday pit stop!

  • Make sure you go by OhAndOne's tent! Good vintage stuff!
  • Try the Chocolate Whoopie Pie And Butter Cream Ice Cream Sandwich - From Melt Bakery. Really good.

  • Fun to visit in the summer, but fewer offerings than I'd expected...
  • You have got to stop by the e. e. cookies table! Lots of great cookies, brownies, whoopie pies and more. Plenty of samples to try.
  • Think twice about trying the "Thai Fighter"- chili chocolate ice cream in between 2 coconut curry cookies - for $4 from Melt Bakery. Flavor is ODD - curry is strong & too spicy for my taste!

  • Bombay sandwich Co!!!
  • Patacon Pisao - the Plantain and beef "sandwich" UH-MAYZING and so is Pies & Thighs chicken and biscuit "sandwich"
