Smorgasburg, which returned for its fourth season at Brooklyn Flea last weekend, is a Williamsburg institution and constant source of joy (Ramenburgers! Local beer! Mighty Quinns!) and aggravation (ugh, this line). Now in its second season, the DUMBO Sunday market (at Pier 5 in Brooklyn Bridge Park) is often a better choice than its big brother in Williamsburg. Less crowded, and with about 80 vendors this year, it’s catching up to the W’burg market in size, and when booze drops on the location later this season, we’ll see nary a reason to head upriver to its sibling. Except maybe, for a Ramenburger.
Check out a sample of what’s new at the DUMBO location.
