DAYTRIPPING - Brooklyn Winter Flea & Smorgasburg

Whenever my husband and I have a day of together, we try to get out and do something fun in the city. Its super rare that we actually have a weekend day off together, so we had to take advantage of a free Saturday and check out the Brooklyn Indoor Flea Market, Record Fair and Smorgasburg (Food Vendors galore).
We had been to the Brooklyn Flea before (Saturdays in Fort Greene and Sundays under the Manhattan Bridge), but never to the Indoor Winter version, that combines the Food Fair with the Flea Market.
Its a perfect thing to do on a cold, wintery day, since you can spend hours exploring inside. The Winter Flea is located inside the old Williamsburg Savings Bank at 1 Hanson Pl in Downtown Brooklyn, right across from the Barclays Center. Its super easy to get there by Subway (Atlantic Ave - Barclays Center station) or by car (you can park across the street in the Atlantic Center shopping mall parking lot).

The building it self is beautiful and we had a lot of fun exploring all the vendors. Every once in a while the Brooklyn Flea also holds a record fair, with a huge selection of music to pick through. The main market is on the ground floor and level 1. The Smorgasburg food fair and Record Fair are located in the basement.

Our favorite find, no questions asked, were these Chinese Quail Eggs on a stick! Amazing. They came in 3 different flavors (plus 1 non-egg sausage version). Sooooo yummy! I easily could've had 5 of those. I had the South (with nacho cheese and tortilla) and my husband had the West (with Turffle and breadcrumbs)
I also totally had to have a Wowfull because ever since I discovered those Hong Kong style Egg Waffles with Ice Cream in Toronto, I'm a huge fan!!

Chinese Streetfood by "Brunchspot". Our new favorite

Wowfulls - Sweet version with Ice Cream for me. Chicken & Wowfull version for him.

Thousands of records to dig through at the Record Fair.
