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/.
L to Bedford Ave.
Get subway directions via Hopstop
B62 to N. 7 St. + Bedford Ave.
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!
