The weather is getting warmer which means it’s time to play outside in Brooklyn! If you haven’t heard, there’s a famous outdoor weekend food festival in NYC known as Smorgasburg! This year, it goes from April 2019 to November 2019. While it’s open, tourists and locals flock to eat at one of the (almost) 100 food stands! I’ve rounded up some of my favorite vegan eats at the festival, so save up some room in your stomach and share with friends!
