My Linh and I were lucky enough to be briefly reunited in New York a little while ago, when I visited for New York Wine & Food Festival (more on that later!). With only a short period of time for exploring, My Linh took me to Smorgasburg, a food flea market in Brooklyn.
She knows me so well. It’s essentially a gathering of 75-100 local food vendors and artisans selling fresh and packaged food. It was amazing. Oh and what else, there’s also a view! Eats, views, what more can you ask for? I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
On the way there, there’s another flea market, which focuses on clothes and artists, as you can see. It’s a cool place to pick up vintage and handcrafted goods.
First vendor I saw was the adorable Lassi cart (top photo). What I love about the vendors here is that they take a lot of time designing their logos and set-ups, in addition to the food. I mean, that striped tablecloth goes so well with their saltwater taffy.
These baguette sandwiches. It’s like the light of the heavens were shining down on me, beckoning me to eat them.
Mini cheesecakes. BRILLIANT. And of course, macarons.
Pretty much every sandwich there looked amazing.
For a bread lover like me, this stand was pretty much heaven.
Beautiful cakes and bread! Drool.
Fresh bruschetta style sandwiches.
CHEDBREAD! Genius idea. Different styles of cornbread, each with varying ingredients like maple bacon or roasted jalapeno.
We got a generous slice of this pizza, fresh out ‘da oven. It was everything a New York pizza should be– piping hot, gooey cheese, and crispy, thin crust.
Japanese tacos and shnitzels on pretzel bread.
We also picked up some mac & cheese from the MILK station, and customized it by adding mushrooms and scallions.
Porchetta. Succulent, crispy, tender– it’s like the king of pork. A favorite of ours.
Pretty much all the best-dressed kids in NYC were at Smorgasburg. I see a future model in this little guy.
Just throwin this in cause it’s almost Christmas.
Of course. No visit to Brooklyn would be complete without watching artists in action.
