Eat What You Want Day is like a day made by foodies…so every day? Sometimes you need to step away from the rabbit food and just enjoy life a little, indulge a bit. It is only right for #EatWhatYouWantDay we talk about our time at Smorgasburg Los Angeles and all its’ glorious food!

“Smorgasburg is the largest weekly open-air food market in America, with markets in New York and Los Angeles attracting 50,000 people each weekend to eat from a hundred local vendors.”

We both love to eat, in fact we have to actively fight ourselves to not turn our ModernDayCouple Instagram account into a food account. We travel to food events like people travel to music festivals, our trips revolve around food literally. Dessert is always an option and carbs are your fun friends.

Smorgasburg LA came to the west coast in the Summer of 2016, taking over a very cool row in Downtown Los Angeles, very close to the arts district where you can read about our visit to The Container Yard here. The first thing you will notice when you arrive is the number of food vendors there, there is a lot, but not too many (about 50+), which feels like the right amount for the space you have to walk around and sit in. In the center of it all, they have a designated beer garden and other vendors that are not necessarily revolved around food. Seating is made up of a few benches and seats, which is nice as you get to meet other foodies and stare at their food 😁


Most people eat brunch on Sunday, find a super chill spot with some good food and drinks. Sunday in Downtown LA is Smorgasburg, open 10AM to 4PM and you go there to devour food, lots of it! Parking was not an issue at all (surprise) as there was a garage there. We did arrive pretty much when it opened shortly after 10AM though, to be honest, but we already started to see people pour in towards the entrance. One very good thing we noticed was the amount of people taking alternative transportation from the bus, Lyft/Uber to riding bikes.
