Hipsters and over-priced vegan food and self-important vendors aside, I love farmer’s markets. Because they sell food there. Food that is usually much, much better than your standard grocery fare. And they give you samples of that food. Free samples. So stop bitching and try some of the cheese because it really is fantastic.
And the Smorgasburg weekend market in Williamsburg is just one of those places.
Lemon Lime Olive Oil. This is the kind of thing you should eat at a Tuscan Villa with freshly baked bread, figs, and home-cured prosciutto, while sipping some sort of ridiculous wine, petting a goat, and watching the sun set.
Only really you’re in an empty lot surrounded by a bunch of EZ-Up tents and bearded guys in skinny jeans.
Vegan pumpkin pie squares and granola from Granola Lab. “Elemental Formula” granola was crunchy and delicious and the hippie in me wants some of it right now.
Bon Bon Bar chocolate samples from Fine & Raw Chocolate, based in Brooklyn. F*** me, those were good.
