The Smorgasburg season is kicking off again, a welcomed sign of spring, this year with a few new comers on display that you shouldn’t miss out on.

April 2 was the opening day of the popular Brooklyn Flea food market this year, showcasing many old recognizable faces, but also some new ones. The Smorg team has carefully chosen the ones on display, out of hundreds of applicants, all to make you taste buds dance a little bit more in joy.

Here’s is the ones you should keep an extra eye on:

Rubyzaar Baked

Saturdays and Sundays

Rubyzaar Baked

Rubyzaar Baked is cookie baking with inspiration from their favorite tunes. Look for the Midnight Train to Georgia, the Ginger Baker and the Keith Moonpie with burnt marshmallows.

This Brooklyn based family run bakery, by the two sisters Sarah and Molly, always put that little extra of creation into their work.

Wowfulls

Saturdays and Sundays

Wowfulls

Wowfulls debuted at the winter edition of Smorgasburg where they literally took the visitors by storm with their own Gai Dan Jai, which are egg-based waffles.

The waffles are carefully made with the help of a special waffle device from Hong Kong where the waffles (Gai Dan Jai) concept origins. The final result is a delicious and creative waffle served with ice cream and toppings.

Tramezzini NYC

Saturdays and Sundays

Tramezzini NYC

Tramezzini is all about high quality ingredients directly imported from Italy. The brothers, born and raised in Venice, that are running this spot have a clear focus: Venetian tramezzini, a very old sandwich that is almost unnaturally soft.

The combination of the fresh speck and Grana Padano, both from Italy of course, makes this a must visit.

Kotti Berlin Street Food

Sundays only

Kotti Berlin Street Food

Kotti serves the German street food version of Turkish döner kebab, and its absolutely delicious. With marinated meat, better than the most meat skewers you’ve had, roasted on a spit with the usual döner ingredients, makes this German street food staple a must have.

Try the different sauces, as they are very particular about this.

2nd City Beef

Saturdays only

2nd City Beef

2nd City Beef is about authentic Chicago-style Italian beef sandwiches created by two native Chicago boys. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that this is a winner back in Chicago, and it will convert some visitors here as well, rest assured.

The beef, roasted and braised for more than 5 hours while laying in a Italian seasoning bath, is mouthwatering to say the least. Its then served with provolone and sweet and spicy giardiniera on a roll.
