In response to the Fancy Food Show, setting up this weekend as it has annually since 1955, the Unfancy Food Show will bypass the dehydrated foie gras chocolate-caliber fanciness for its second year to showcase handmade delicacies produced right here in small-scale batches.
Vendors such as Bronx Bee Honey, Jasper Hill Farm cheeses, McClure’s Pickles, Sixpoint Craft Ales and twelve other inspiring artisans will meet, rain or shine, at the East River Bar, a former paint factory and Billyburg institution. Skip the frenetic 675,000-square foot Javits Convention Center to meet passionate bean roasters, cheese mongers and pickle briners eager to feed you samples and stories. Unfanciness will take place Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.
