You cannot be in New York City without experiencing an overload of two things: food and shopping. On Saturdays, Brooklyn is the perfect place for that. With a ton of local & designer boutiques and tasty food festivals, your body will have gone through a full NYC transformation by the end of the day.
Simply-put, this is a food lovers heaven. Every Saturday in the East River State Park, a food festival with over 100 vendors is held. You will find every type of food for every type of person here. From ramen burgers to iced coffee, this place has you covered. It offers options for almost every dietary need as well.

Artists & Fleas
This is beyond my favorite place on Earth. Artist & Fleas is a flea market overload. It's indoor and has two locations, Brooklyn & Chelsea. Inside, you are introduced to tons of vendors selling new and used things such as new and used fashion, beauty products, candles, soap, knick-knacks, and more! It is the place to fund anything funky and original, and is fantastic for gifts (for others, but mostly gifts for yourself!)
Plus! It's Brooklyn location is centrally located near Smorgasburg...
