To celebrate ice cream month, we are hosting our annual Ice Cream Social with the best ice cream vendors from across all five boroughs!
In honor of Ice Cream Month— which is actually a thing, thank goodness— Hester Street Fair will be hosting our annual Ice Cream Social competition. On Saturday July 21st, we offer you the best ice cream vendors from across the five boroughs, bringing us their finest flavors to compete for the chance to claim this year’s acclaimed ‘Audience Award’.
Since our first Ice Cream Social, thousands of people have showed up— including Leo DiCaprio and his mom— but don’t be intimidated, as all it takes to vote is $10 which gives you one vote and a 2oz sample of each vendors’ signature flavor for the day. The votes will be tallied at 4:30pm and a winner announced at 5pm. The fate of NYC’s ice cream obsession is in your hands!
THE ICE CREAM CONTENDERS
Ube ice cream, doughnut sandwiches, fruity pebble toppings… Stax ice cream is like a summer fever dream that we never want to melt away.
Tiny Home Creamery
Born out of a love for science and consuming entire pints of Ben & Jerry’s in one sitting, Josh and Meera began using their at home ice cream maker to perfect flavors like crème brûlée, cold-brew coffee, and PB&J from their 264 sq. ft. apartment in the City— and now they think it’s time to share the goodness to the ice cream lovers of NYC.
Scoops in Cahoots
This local creamery run by two sisters uses only fresh, non-GMO milk and cream from female owned farms upstate to make vegetarian-friendly ice cream flavors like Laurent-Perrier Champagne, fair-trade espresso, and made-from-scratch oatmeal cookie dough.
Born in Brooklyn in 2007, Blue Marble strives to make taste buds happy and hearts feel good. Being NYC’s only certified organic ice cream shop with two stores in Brooklyn and expanding into 15 states, Blue Marble is set to take over NYC…and the world!
Staying true to their roots, La Newyorkina’s mission is not only to create the most delicious chilly treats possible, but to share and educate on the rich culture of Mexican flavors. Making “nieves de garrafa” in the most authentic way possible, join their culinary ride with flavors like horchata and tres leches cake.
Artist Claire Christerson’s new project, CMC Wearable, features satin scarves that are inspired her drawings. This week she’ll be debuting four designs, all hand drawn and thoughtfully transposed onto the satin. Claire will also have her two new books available for sale: “Fractures in My Structures,” and “Between Earth and Water//Daffodils”
