We headed over to Smorgasburg, a giant all-food market that happens every Saturday and Sunday (note that the Sunday location has been moved from the Tobacco Warehouse to Pier 6). Although I've been to food markets before, Smorgasburg easily blew them all away with the sheer number and diversity of vendors. Of the items we tried, standouts were the Bacon Cheddar Blue from Milk Truck Grilled Cheese, and the White Peach Ginger Ale from Heartbreaking Dawn's 1776 Beverage Co. brand. I was disappointed by Asia Dog (small portions, with very regular weiners and toppings that didn't really complement each other) and Jack's Chedbred (the cornbread was quite dry). Best value went to Handsome Hank's Fish Hut ($8 for three large pieces of fish and coleslaw), and the one item I saw everyone else eating but couldn't find room in my stomach for was an ice cream sandwich from The Good Batch.
