You should properly plan your visit to this Wynwood open-air market if you want to have a good time. First, sunscreen is a must. The vast majority of Smorgasburg’s big lot is unshaded. Second, you’ll need to keep your hands free to carry food, so roomy pockets or a sling bag is key. And, unless you enjoy walking like a baby giraffe on gravel, wear flat comfortable shoes. Smorgasburg is also only open on weekends. And finally, it’s hot nine months out of the year, so claiming a shaded picnic table with friends and foraging for food in shifts is the winning strategy here.
Vendors change a lot, but two opening-day veterans to look out for are The Maiz Project’s excellent arepas made with their own fresh masa and Dale Street-Food’s smoky chorizo croquetas yakitori. The rest of the rotating 60-ish options can be hit-or-miss—sort of like hopeful American Idol contestants honing their craft and longing to be discovered. One thing is certain though—it’s the only place in Miami where you can enjoy Korean street food, a refreshing frozen drink from Los Felix, and gooey raclette, all while listening to live music al fresco. Just please trust us on the sunscreen.
