After a long hard week at work the weekend is finally here and you’re wondering what you should do with your two days off. The only place I can think of to spend my Saturday is at Smorgasburg, the food flea market located in Brooklyn. Two Saturdays ago I decided to head down to Williamsburg, Brooklyn to find out what Smorgasburg was all about.
The setting for Smorgasburg couldn’t be more serene. It’s set right on the water with a small park only a few feet away. But what is Smorgasburg? The idea for Smorgasburg initially sprang from the food that was being served at the Brooklyn Flea Market. There was such a following that the Brooklyn Flea Market decided to create a completely separate flea market that would only serve food — and good quality food at that. At Smorgasburg you can find 100 plus vendors selling everything from blood orange glazed donuts (they were delicious!) to fancier dishes like gazpacho and sandwiches with hand pulled mozzarella. You’ll feel like you’re in food heaven.
Smorgasburg is aptly named. Turn the corner and you’ll find a completely different type of food than what you had at the stand a few feet away. While it can get pricey, I enjoyed every bit of it. Smorgasburg is featured on the Williamsburg waterfront from 9AM to 5PM every Saturday.
Have you been to Smorgasburg? If so, how did you like it?
