“Fun but small”
Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

From the website I thought it would be a NYC block but it's tucked in next to a playground. 1st time there had an amazing macaroon and a bacon donut. Both will be very popular some day. Would go back if in the neighborhood

“Cool vintage finds”

This fair was a lot smaller than I thought, but had lots of great vintage jewelry! I wrote a review and took lots of pics for my website, City Gal on the go! Check it out at citygalonthego (dot) com!

“Farm fresh local produce and authentic nyc vibe”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

Loved this fair,especially the treat of finding mouth watering fresh berries and sweet corn grown on a farm within 100 miles of the city.The Rachel Mae Farmstand seems to be a little bit of the east end of Long Island transported to the lower east side. Everything was delicious. The baby spinach ,strawberries , and snap peas made a great salad. I had to go back and get more plus the corn on the cob brought back wonderful childhood memories. Kudos to Rachel Mae Farmstand,thanks for bringing local produce to nyc at affordable prices. Her small batch jams won over my house guests and were the hit at breakfast on toast, lunch stirred into yogurt and as a late night decadent snack, warmed up and spooned over icecream.
