Saturdays at East River State Park and Sundays at Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 5 from 11am to 6pm until November.
Created by the folks at Brooklyn Flea, NYC's beloved Smorgasburg returned for 2015 in early April featuring a huge lineup of favorites like Ramen Burger, Home Frite, Dan & John's Wings, and over 200 other great food stands along with a bunch of great newcomers. Picture what seems like endless delicious food options, cool people, and panoramic views of Manhattan from across the East River. It's a thing of beauty, except for the lines, but if you're strategic about it those won't even phase you.
Check out more info on the lineup here.

41st Street and Broadway in Midtown from May 4th through June 14th, 11am to 9pm.
With awesome food offerings from over 30 vendors like paella, Lebanese pizza, lobster rolls, empanadas, and more, this outdoor food market is one of the few good reasons to venture near Times Square. Newcomers include refreshing slushie maker Kelvin Slush Co., and modern American fare from food truck concept Yankee Doodle Dandy's. So while the market's proximity is dangerously close to the throngs tourists, the bright side is that it's also close to Bryant Park where you can hopefully score a table and chairs or a patch of lawn while you chow down.
