Smorgasburg Season in Brooklyn

March 28, 2024 Desiree Homer

Shake off the chill of NYC winter and embrace the warmer weather by getting out and about in Brooklyn to experience all the Smorgasburg Food Market has to offer. Enjoy views of the Manhattan skyline while strolling through one of the trendiest open-air food markets situated on the East River waterfront. This local hot spot has around 100 different vendors serving up a diverse selection of food and drink items New Yorkers will love. The countdown is on, so mark your calendars for the Smorgasburg reopening, which will start April 5th, 2024!

Smorgasburg is Dubbed ‘The Woodstock of Eating’

Smorgasburg is officially the largest outdoor food market in America, and although it has multiple locations and pop-ups all over the world, it started right here in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It welcomes over two million people annually to the markets across New York, Los Angeles, and Miami alone.

As a spinoff of Brooklyn Flea, Smorgasburg opened in the spring of 2011. Past expansions have included markets in Jersey City, Washington D.C., Toronto, and Kingston, NY. Additionally, there have been pop-ups all over the country in places like Osaka, Japan, Sao Paulo, Brazil, and more! This year’s NYC locations will include the original Williamsburg location, plus The Oculus at the World Trade Center in downtown Manhattan and Prospect Park in Brooklyn.

Smorgasburg has been a place for independent food and drink vendors to thrive and grow their businesses. Some have been Smorgasburg vendors for years, while others have gone on to successful brick-and-mortar establishments or produced their own packaged goods for the masses. Local New Yorkers and Smorgasburg vendors come together and personally connect over a love for food and drinks.
