In a not-very-surprising move, foodie phenom Smorgasburg has announced that it will open indoor markets in Fort Greene and Williamsburg this winter, according to Eater. Since first opening as an outcrop of Brooklyn Flea in 2011, Smorgasburg has grown to operate seasonal outdoor markets in Williamsburg, Prospect Park, Brooklyn Flea, as well as the indoor Berg’n food hall and even another outdoor market in Downtown LA. Their newest spots will be a 25,000-square-foot space in the Atlantic Center mall across from the Barclays Center and a night market in collaboration with Vice Media at their Williamsburg event space Villian. The latter will also have a full bar, DJs, and art exhibitions.

It seems as though Vice is upping its food hall game. Just two months ago it was announced that they’d be opening a market at the over-the-top American Dream mall planned for the site next to MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford. This one will be called Munchies, the same name as their popular food blog and have 400 seats and 14 stalls, including a cooking studio and two revolving kitchens “showcasing up-and-coming chefs and concepts i.e. pop-up restaurants,” according to the American Dream website. Here, they’ll also sell branded merchandise and host events–a similar concept to their Smorgasburg collab, which will host 15 food vendors.

Over in Fort Greene, Smorgasburg co-founders Eric Demby and Jonathan Butler are also trying to create a bit of an experiential destination. In addition to the 25 food vendors, there will be a full bar, bocce court from Bocce USQ, and 25 Brooklyn Flea vendors.
