For years, Brooklyn has been the exclusive home to Smorgasburg in New York City—a summertime favorite that consistently draws in crowds of hungry city natives and tourists alike. The outdoor festival, which has been called the “Woodstock of Eating” by The New York Times, features an impressive rotating display of local vendors and showcases signature menu options that are delicious, often unique, and totally Instagrammable. With its new two-year lease recently signed in SoHo, the Manhattan outpost of Smorgasburg is just a short walk from the 70 Charlton condos.
Varying from its predecessors, the SoHo Smorgasburg—titled SmorgSquare and located at 76 Varick Street—is open Friday’s and Saturday’s from 11:00AM to 10:00PM, and Sunday’s from 11:00AM to 8:00PM, with the most extensive offerings on Saturdays and Sundays. Having overtaken an empty, 23,000 square feet lot adjacent to the busy and bustling Holland Tunnel, the daily market provides a combination of food and drinks served from food trucks, as well as several vendors selling small gifts and other non-edible products. A few of the standout vendors attendees will be sure to enjoy include Goa Taco, Ramen Burger, and The Good Batch.
The opening of Smorgasburg certainly brings a new energy to the SoHo neighborhood, which is known as one of the world’s great shopping centers. Now that it’s arrived, Smorgasburg gives the shoppers living in nearby apartments in SoHo, New York, a regular opportunity to rest their feet and credit cards while refueling and enjoying some local food. And those gearing up for the holiday season will be excited to know that come November, SmorgSquare will transform into a holiday destination with plentiful eating and shopping.
