VPR Cafe: A Visit To Smorgasburg

Sally Pollak

Put a smorgasbord on the Williamsburg waterfront on the East River and you're in a food heaven called Smorgasburg. It's a Brooklyn, New York phenomena that brings food and people from around the world together every weekend.

Sally Pollak of the Burlington Free Press visited Smorgasburg with Eric Rozendaal of Rockville Market Farm in Starksboro. Sally talks about her experience - and how Eric and his team introduced maple lemonade to the Big Apple. Rozendaal also sells chocolate-beet and butternut squash doughnuts and gorditas.

Sally writes for the Savorevore Section of the Burlington Free Press, where you can read more about her trip to Williamsburg. You can also visit Rockville Market Farm, Starksboro; Smorgasburg, A Brooklyn Flea Food Market; and Dragonfly Sugarworks, where Maple Lemonade was born.

The VPR Cafe is produced in collaboration with the Burlington Free Press and is made possible on VPR by the Vermont Community Foundation Food and Farm Initiative.
