Foodies Rejoice! Smorgasburg Returns to the Park
February 17, 2016
Following a successful pilot run last fall, Smorgasburg is set to return to Prospect Park this spring, this time for a full season of Sundays from April 3 through October 23. The showcase of the best of the borough’s artisanal food scene brings together a massive mix of 100 local and regional vendors with cuisines from around the world. Join the Prospect Park Alliance on Breeze Hill each week to sample a variety of fares, both familiar and exotic.
“We are thrilled to have Smorgasburg return to Prospect Park this year to continue to enliven and enhance the food options available for our many park visitors,” says Prospect Park Alliance President Sue Donoghue. “The partnership with Smorgasburg proved extremely successful in our pilot last year and Park-goers loved having this popular food market in the Park.”
Smorgasburg began in Williamsburg as a spin-off project of Brooklyn Flea founders Jonathan Butler and Eric Demby, and has now become a year round, mobile gathering congregating indoors at Industry City in the winter months and outdoors in Prospect Park and the Williamsburg waterfront during the warmer months. “Prospect Park is the best place, let alone park, in New York,” says Demby, “how could we not come back?”
