IT'S TIME FOR A SMORGASBURG (VISIT)!

The warm weather is upon us now and so what better reason than to plan a visit to Smorgasburg. For those that have not yet visited Smorgasburg, it is a culinary feast so suggest you do no eat in advance or at least eat very little! The plan is as follows:

11:30AM - Plan to meet at East River State Park (90 Kent Ave at N. 7 St.). Directions are on the website: http://www.brooklynflea.com/locations/.

Subway

L to Bedford Ave.

Get subway directions via Hopstop

Bus

B62 to N. 7 St. + Bedford Ave.

Car

From I-278 East/BQE, take Exit 32 (Metropolitan Ave.), merge onto Rodney St. 3 blocks, stay straight at traffic light on Meeker Ave., take first available left at Union Ave. (passing under BQE), then hard left at traffic light (basically a U-turn on Meeker Ave.), take quick right onto North 6th St., follow for 7 blocks until Kent Ave.

From I-278 West/BQE, take Exit 32B (Metropolitan Ave.), merge onto Meeker Ave., turn right at N. 6th St. for 7 blocks until Kent Ave.

Inexpensive garage parking is available on North 5th St. west of Kent Ave

 

 

*NOTE* I will post a photo of where I will be based to this meetup upon my arrival, ETA 11:15AM.

 

11:31AM - Start wondering around, checking out the vendors, sampling along the way, finding faves.

12:45PM/1PM - Wrap up our visit and depart before the masses arrive and long lines!

*You are recommended to bring cash on the day to expedite the purchases at vendor stalls. Some may or may not take credit cards*

Hope to see you there!

    Bridget, could you carry a small sign identifying the group or wear a bright colored shirt or other item and let us know. Especially since the group is pretty small and for anyone new who has not met you or the group yet? I think it Would be really helpful :-)

      I will be in a white top carrying a large pink purse. Knowing you are coming I will make sure to wait and look out for you. That's why the photos are helpful. See you later this morning.

    Updated the meeting spot in the meetup and noting here: meet inside the Kent Ave gate, north of 7th street . While I had asked for a desired meeting spot or a known vendor near entry this is what was identified by the Smorgasburg crowd. I will also take a photo upon arrival. I will wait a few minutes around this area and will look out for people looking for me!

    Question: are we meeting at 90 Kent Ave at N. 7 St.? I'm coming from Manhattan, And get terrible cell phone reception out in Brooklyn, so probably will have a hard time accessing the meet up sight. Could you please post today where the group is meeting with any landmarks nearby?

    East River State Park (90 Kent Ave at N. 7 St.) is in Williamsburg, BROOKLYN. I hope nobody gets lost in Manhattan!

      I've corrected it, the site has an auto fill so can be easy to select the wrong address. Thanks for the note.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
