Smorgasburg Coming to Upstate New York


Smorgasburg, the food offshoot of Brooklyn Flea is coming to Kingston, NY this year beginning June 4th. The open-air market will feature dozens of upstate food vendors, plus local handmade goods and antiques on 10 acres of the former Hutton Brickyards site on the banks of the Hudson River.

Local restaurants like Outdated (Kingston) and Prairie Whale (Great Barrington) will join Brooklyn stalwarts such as Ramen Burger and Lumpia Shack along with fresh produce, snacks and packaged foods from the likes of Fleisher’s Craft Butchery (Kingston), Raven & Boar (East Chatham) and Sawkill Farm (Red Hook).

“Bringing our movable feast to Upstate New York is the natural evolution for a company that’s been celebrating and promoting local food businesses for the past decade,” said Jonathan Butler who, along with Eric Demby, founded the Brooklyn Flea in 2008 and Smorgasburg in 2011. “There’s a renaissance occurring in the creative economy in the Hudson Valley that we are looking forward to being a part of. We think Kingston, with its central location, storied history, beautiful riverfront environment, and vibrant community, is the perfect place to pitch our tent (or in this case, tents).”


The opening of Smorgasburg on the site will mark the first time in three decades that the public will be able to access the site and enjoy the stunning views of the Hudson River and the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge. The Hutton Brickyards is located at 100 North Street in Kingston, NY. Smorgasburg will be held on Saturdays starting June 4, 2016 through the end of October, from 11:00am to 8:00 pm. For more information visit their website at
