It really was a different type of food festival, many different options (ramen burgers, coconut filled icecream etc), everything tasted delishes. It is expansive though! Be prepared to pay anywhere from $10-20 for every "sample" and you will probably have about 5-6 of them :)

This is one of the most unique experiences in all of NYC. Tons of vendors with nothing usual in the food category. No necessarily the healthiest fare but yummy at every turn. From spaghetti donuts to lobster, and fried foods of every assortment. The prices...More

Smorgasburg sounds like a TV program. You are the actor, you choose the scene. There is a lot of options to make your stomach satisfied. Try a walk to Bedford St and a coffee at the Flea Market close to Smorgasburg. Oh... There is a...More

Nice place to go on a sunny day in Williamsburg. We enjoyed the tacos, oysters, fresh teas and yakitori. Amazing food next to the water is hard to beat. Free to enter is a bonus!

Parking on Saturday around Smorgasburg is horrendous, unless you arrive by 10am. Otherwise take cab, subway, or ferry, if you plan to arrive anytime between 12-5p
