Indulge your inner foodie and shopaholic at this weekly food-focused market. The Brooklyn export has landed in the Arts District and become a hotbed of fantastic food and retail vendors, with some that are testing out their dishes before launching a full-blown brick-and-mortar in the city. Bonus: there is plentiful (and free, for two hours!) parking in the nearby parking garage.

Part of a new-ish development called ROW DTLA, what I really love about the location of Smorgasburg is that it has ample parking! Not only that, but it's 2 hours free, which both combined is as rare and beautiful as a unicorn, especially when it comes to most of Downtown LA! On top of that, the vendor selection is great, with a ton of different eateries to try out that are unique. I love the fact that they're all pretty small businesses with out-of-the-box, yet quality concepts. At the same time, it's not overwhelming, which is actually a relief so you don't feel foodie FOMO at the end of your visit. There's still enough vendors that leave you wanting to come back again, which is always great. My biggest tip would be to come with a big group so you can all get different items to share, and try a little bit of a lot of different things and see what you like! Wish there was a little more shade, but they do have some tables with umbrellas, and has a mister when I went. Highly recommend for a fun day in DTLA!
A very cool foodie paradise experience! Didn't know this was from NYC, and it's a great concept pulling together local businesses in one place.
A lot of the vendors here are very organic ,artisanal, and that kind of food. I saw all types/variations of basics like burgers, mac n cheese, ice cream, and more.
If you're a foodie, definitely a good spot to eat and try some new things!
A very fun way to spend a Sunday. Be sure to attend with an empty stomach and try a variety of dishes. They also have a small beer/alcohol garden. Follow them on Instagram (@smorgasburgla) to see what vendors will be in attendance that week. There is free two hour parking in the garage.
