Several new additions to the market this year bring fresh options like cheesesteaks, paella, fresh sushi, and more. Grab your food and ditch the crowds of people circling like sharks for one of the few high-top or picnic tables within the market's confines and grab a seat in the shade across the street.

Located in the lot next to the Thunderbolt roller coaster at Coney Island and set to open May 22nd through Memorial Day with plans for Friday through Sunday hours after that and potentially daily markets by the end of June.
With the wild success and popularity of the aforementioned Smorgasburg markets in Brooklyn, it's no surprise that Brooklyn Flea is expanding to the summer destination/tourist trap that is Coney Island with a mini Smorgasburg market made out of retrofitted shipping containers, which is pretty cool alone. While it's not slated to open until later this month (and you can't go there right now), it's worth planning an adventure to Coney for about a dozen Smorgasburg vendors like Mofongo, Home Frite, Dan & John's Wings, Bon Chovie, and Mile End as well as an obligatory whirl on the Wonder Wheel.
