The vendor list is extensive, featuring everything from lobster rolls to ice pops, coconut stands to Peruvian cuisine. Make sure you bring cash! We tried out Macbar and got a hearty bowl of bacon mac as well as the most AMAZING dark chocolate smoothie. It's slightly bittersweet, supremely chocolate-y and thick chunky. After that overload of richness, we were about stuffed for the day.
I think the entire weekend is typically packed, but if you haven't, try out the new location near Brooklyn Bridge Park on Sundays. I was quite surprised by how quaint and residential the area is – I'm far from a Brooklyn expert but it was roughly in between Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens. If you take the train, the path to the market is a straight path along a sloped sidewalks lined with peaceful trees and beautiful brownstone apartments.
