Smorgasburg– foodies’ favorite excuse to flock to Brooklyn– is set to launch in Long Island CIty this Saturday, July 11 with their World’s Fare Queens edition.
The new half-indoor, half-outdoor venue (43-29 Crescent St.) will be open Saturdays from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Two dozen stands will feature Smorgasburg favorites (yes, this means new noodles from Ramen Burger creator Keizo Shimamoto) and new vendors, mostly all Queens locals.
Smorgasburg Queens isn’t called The World’s Fare for nothing: The Arepa Lady will be dishing out her famous arepas and Kim Chi Smoke will cater to your Korean Taco cravings. Desserts will be in abundance, too with Alchemy Creamery’s vegan ice cream and deep fried beignet dough battered banana pudding from Sugar Freak Astoria.
We previewed some of the stands at the new food market–here are some of the vendors we are most excited about.
