Street Fairs - Sundays In My City


Street markets are always fun. Nearly every weekend during the summer months a street or avenue is closed off for the markets. Just beware if you're driving, you will be directed all the way up or downtown in NY traffic which is always at a standstill in these areas.

If you plan on a visit to NY and want to find out more here are a couple of links.














Stop by at Unknown Mami's for a tour of the world, city by city.

NYC Street Fairs are the best!!!! (Traffic, not so much.) I haven't been to one in years but I have great memories from the ones I did attend-- The sights, sounds, foods and merchandise was always terrific,

Happy SIMC from Los Angeles,

I stumbled onto a street fair on 9th ave once. It was a nice surprise and the food was wonderful! I'll have to send the links to my sister so she can plan her city trips around the street fairs.

What a fantastic array of merchandise! The glasses (hand painted I presume?) are amazing and the drums and baskets are wonderful too.

The colour and vibrancy in your photos are amazing. I want to go to the street fair too, just another reason to go back to NY.
