As the weather begins to warm up, Brooklyn proceeds to morph into the outdoor playground of our adult dreams—there’s music, movies, food, and alcohol at every turn to distract you from the sticky New York summer. That’s why we love Smorgasburg so much, which is essentially just a food festival EVERY. SINGLE. WEEKEND.
Starting this Saturday, April 1st at East River State Park, Smorgasburg will make its yearly comeback to Williamsburg from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (and will pick up again Sunday morning in Prospect Park!) It’s bringing lots of new and exciting vendors—26 out of the lineup of 100 to be exact—including a very exciting spaghetti donut from Pop Pasta, raclette sandwiches from Cheese Haus, horchata churro ice cream sandwiches from Dulcinea Churros, and ube ice cream bowls from Ube Kitchen.
Gothamist reports that this year Smorgasburg will be a “zero-waste” event, meaning “all dishes and utensils are compostable, with no cans or plastic bottles allowed”. Vendors will also refrain from selling water bottles (boo) but there will be free water stations throughout the park instead (hell yeah, though).
Smorgasburg, the brainchild of Jonathan Butler and Eric Demby, is in its 7th year and has launched some of the most popular and exciting food trends into the mainstream like The Original Ramen Burger’s ramen burger, Wowfull’s egg waffle ice cream cones, and the infamous raindrop cake.
Come hungry—we’ll see you this weekend!
