Smorgasburg LA: Must Try Eats & Treats

Smorgasburg is one of the most popular food markets in America, originating in Brooklyn but slowly opening up in different cities all around the U.S. Filled with dozens of food vendors, vintage shops, cultural events, and pop ups, this is an up and coming destination for locals to spend their Sunday afternoons. I got the chance to eat my way through Smorgasburg LA (located in Downtown Los Angeles) and let me just say, my tummy was very very happy. Here’s a look at some of my favorite food vendors and must try eats:
