SMORGASBURG – LA a Sunday Adventure

Sunday Adventure - Enjoying a Donut Ice Cream Sandwich from Donut Friend at the Smorgasburg LA Food Market

I think I’m going to make Sunday Adventures a weekly series. Who doesn’t like #SundaFunday, right? I swear one of my favorite things in the world is spending time with my beloved. And one of the things we love doing is going on adventures and experiencing new things together. So a Sunday Adventure Series will be perfect! That way we can keep exploring and bringing you guys some Sunday inspiration.

So this past Sunday we headed out to Downtown- LA for the Smorgasburg market which is an open-air food market. It’s open every Sunday and because of our amazing weather here in LA, it remains open all year round. Now if you are in New York the original home of the Smorgasburg Flea-Food Market in Brooklyn you can visit their two different locations on Saturday or Sunday. For more info on those, you can click here.

Now for those of you who dislike going to Downtown LA because of the parking situation…. Fear no more as there is FREE 2-hour parking in a lot with 4,000 spots available. (785 Bay St., Los Angeles, CA 90021) Now you have no excuses to go out and enjoy a Sunday afternoon at ROW DTLA.

Smorgasburg LA is open from 10am-4pm. It does get really hot and there’s minimum shade so if you want to avoid the extreme sun I would recommend going before noon. Also the later you go the more crowded it gets. Drew and I arrived around 11 am which I think is the sweet spot. By the time it started to get really hot we were already on our way out.

Okay, let’s talk about the delicious food available at Smorgasburg LA! There’s dozens of options and something for every taste bud. We decided to go with The NoMad Truck which is known for their chicken burgers. And let me tell you those chicken burgers did not disappoint. We ordered The NoMad Burger and the Ludo Lefebvre Burger with their rosemary and lemon fries. Everything was so good! The Ludo burger with its crispy chicken skin was Drew’s favorite and the NoMad was my favorite.

For desserts, Smorgasburg LA offers plenty of options as well. I wanted to try everything because everything looked so yummy and I have a huge sweet tooth. But I decided on Donut Friend why? because they have the Donut Ice Cream Sandwich! I’ve never seen one before and I just had to try it. So with Donut Friend you can create your own, so I chose the MC5 Spice donut with vanilla ice cream, nom nom nom 🙂

It’s really good but also super sweet so if you are sensitive to sugar you might think it’s a little too sweet.

Drew and I didn’t go in since we weren’t really feeling like having beers that day.
