Smorgasburg is one of the most popular weekly attractions in NYC, drawing 20,000-30,000 people to Brooklyn every weekend from early April to late October. About 100 local vendors offer their best food every Saturday on the Williamsburg waterfront and Sunday in the green Prospect Park.

Smorgasburg was founded in 2011, as an extension of the popular Brooklyn Flea. Both Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea were launched by Jonathan Butler and Eric Demby. During years of operation, it began many small businesses and attracted millions. The New York Times once called Smorgasburg “The Woodstock of Eating."

Smorgasburg is the best one-day collection of food you can find in the City. It offers everything you can imagine from arepas, poke, and yakitori to fried chicken and popsicles.
