Smorgasburg: Your Summer Mission

Are you near New York right now? Even better, are you in it?

Well mark your calendar for next saturday because you have a date with the L train or your car. You’re going to smorgaburg.

Smorgasburg is a food fair in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, right on the water, full of hipsters. Only here would you find skinny, vegetarian girls in head scarves selling the most decadent grilled cheese, huge lines for tempeh, slushies, and much more. The people who created Brooklyn Flea, described as etsy in person, created it. It happens every saturday and has incredible offerings. For around $20, you can try so many different foods. I went this week for the first time and could go back and eat totally different things, although some items are worth repeating.There was so much variety and range in price, ethnic cuisines, and type of customer.

What we ate:

Miso Kale Chips. So good
The best doughnut I have ever had. Cafe au Lait flavor

From Dough in Bed Stuy. I want to visit their brick and mortar shop.

Breakfast sandwich style grilled cheese

from The Milk Truck

Oil and vinegar samples. Pineapple balsamic is so good!
The best iced coffee I’ve had. Blue Bottle. Yummmm

Blue Bottle Iced Coffee. SO SO SO GOOD

Banana Nutella Dessert (this was a frozen banana pressed into a kind of frozen yogurt texture)

The company was called Rob and Anna’s Bananas but I can’t find their website.

Other snapshots:

a very colorful stall
Hashbar, selling potatoes not drugs

Smorgasburg was a great way to spend saturday morning. Get there early because the most popular items do run out. Bring your appetite, a taste for adventure, and your most alternative outfit (jk I wore j.crew)…
