Brooklyn’s beloved weekly outdoor food market, Smorgasburg, is making its seasonal return to celebrate spring with a grand total of 80 vendors participating in the food market — marking the first “full season” of the delicious food hub since the beginning of the pandemic.

Smorgasburg’s weekly food vendor extravaganza features weekly at two Brooklyn locations; one in Williamsburg and the other in Prospect Park. 

This year, a third location at the World Trade Center will open March 31 in order to satisfy even more patrons.

Hungry visitors can start indulging in the dozens of unique and tasty food the vendors have to offer in Brooklyn beginning April 1 at Williamsburg’s Marsha P. Johnson State Park with the second Smorgasburg vendor location opening in Prospect Park on April 2.

Throughout this Smorgasburg season, over 80 different vendors will be featured across the three locations, many of which will be “making their public-facing debut” at the weekly food market this season.

According to Smorgasburg officials, this year’s lineup is set to be the most diverse since the event’s launch in 2011 and new businesses like Ariapita with their delicious oxtail tacos and mouth watering Peruvian street food from Mikhuy are sure to delight visitors.

This year, Smorgasburg has partnered with food-ordering app ChowNow to help hungry patrons skip the lines by ordering their meals ahead of time to pick up from each booth.
