BROOKLYN, NY — Bring your appetites, Brooklyn.

Popular food festival Smorgasburg will kick off its season at Prospect Park in April, bringing 50 vendors to its sprawling set up at Breeze Hill for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic, organizers announced.

The 2022 launch will also include Smorgasburg locations at the World Trade Center in Manhattan and in Jersey City. The food market's famed Williamsburg spot will open in June after renovations at Marsha P. Johnson State Park.

Smorgasburg, which brings huge crowds to the borough each weekend, has been running with to-go or limited capacity since the coronavirus crisis.

This year, its outdoor set up will include a pick-up option through Uber Eats that aims to reduce the time market-goers spend waiting in lines, organizers said.

Here's what to know about each New York City market, including a peek at new vendors:
