Smorgasburg is the largest weekly open-air food market in America, attracting 20,000-30,000 people to markets each weekend to eat from 100 local vendors—Saturdays on the Williamsburg waterfront and Sundays in beautiful Prospect Park. It launched May 21, 2011, as a spinoff of Brooklyn Flea (founded in 2008), and has since launched dozens of small businesses and attracted millions of visitors. The New York Times dubbed Smorgasburg “The Woodstock of Eating."
In addition to the markets in Brooklyn, Smorgasburg operates a Sunday market in Los Angeles since June 2016, a Saturday market in Washington, DC started in June 2019, annual pop-up markets in Japan and Brazil, and a beer and food hall in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, since August 2014. Smorgasburg has created events and partnerships with clients such as Google, Apple, Airbnb and Ford. Smorgasburg previously operated the concessions at Central Park SummerStage from 2010 until 2018 and a pop-up beer garden and food hall at the Seaport District from 2013 to 2016.
Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea were co-founded by Jonathan Butler and Eric Demby.
