Smorg Square Opens in Soho!

Instagram-friendly and locally-famous food market, Smorgasburg, just opened their newest location this past weekend! Located in Soho at Varick and Canal Street, this gravel lot-turned-market is termed Smorg Square.

The space is much smaller than the original Williamsburg and Prospect Park Smorgasburg locations. Only 20 vendors will be serving up tasty sweet and savory treats every week. But not to fret, some of the most popular and photo-ready establishments have claimed their booths in Soho, including John’s Juice, Big Mozz Sticks, and Ramen Burger. The full list of food vendors include:

  • Big Mozz Sticks
  • Bon Chovie
  • Bona Bona Ice Cream
  • Brooklyn Oyster Party
  • C Bao
  • Dan & John’s Wings
  • Destination Dumplings
  • Duck Season
  • Dulcinea
  • Excell’s Kingston Eatery
  • Goa Taco
  • John’s Juice
  • Lonestar Empire
  • Lupita’s NYC
  • Ramen Burger (out Aug. 25-27+Sept. 1-3)
  • Red Hook Lobster Pound
  • The Good Batch
  • Wood Fired Edibles (starting Sept. 1-3)
  • Wowfulls
  • Yakisoba NYC

Like at the original Williamsburg spot, there is a bar selling booze in Soho’s Smorgasburg. Grab some food, a drink, and a table and you’ve got yourself a nice afternoon outing (or date night). And bonus: the space has a terrific view of One World Trade.

Smorg Square is going to be opened every Friday and Saturday from 11am to 10pm, and Sundays from 11am to 8pm. And unlike the Prospect Park and Williamsburg locations, Smorg Square will stay open through December. It is conveniently right across the street from the new indoor Soho location for Brooklyn Flea. And Smorg Square is also very accessible via public transport. It is located above the Canal Street 1 train station and is two blocks north of the Canal Street A,C,E.

Our Trip to Smorg Square

Ken and I explored Smorg Square this past Saturday afternoon. I enjoyed a pork bun from C Bao (seriously yummy!) Although we weren’t able to snag a seat at the picnic tables, the crowd was much smaller and easier to navigate than the Williamsburg Smorgasburg.  Most of the food vendors had no or minimal lines (except for John’s Juice, of course). We look forward to spending a fall Friday night or two at Smorg Square under the stars, perhaps with a glass of wine and a giant mozzarella stick in hand.

Check out Smorg Square at 76 Varick St, New York, NY.
