brooklyn flea food market | smorgasburg | williamsburg | nyc

spring has finally arrived in new york and smorgasburg, an awesome food market featuring over 70 food vendors, is back outdoors at the east river state park in williamsburg on saturdays & brooklyn bridge park pier 5 on sundays. opening day on april 5th still felt like winter with the wind and cold but the following weekend was a perfect 70 degrees and everyone was out to enjoy the warm weather and delicious food. bep, a vietnamese eatery in williamsburg, and a veteran of smorgasburg, let me spend a fun day with them capturing the food, people, and a few other vendors.

if you’re visiting new york city, come out to brooklyn and check out smorgasburg! (fyi – all vendors are cash only.) and while you’re in nyc, i have a special for couples, families, etc., who are interested in capturing a session in nyc. contact me for more details!

i will be doing a short series featuring other food vendors (ramen burgers, anyone?) as well…stay tuned!
