Brand new vendors like Chichidango and J/10 Chai Co. will make their debut at this event too. If crafts are more your style, make sure to check out handmade goodies from Baobab Collective, Rx Candles, and Goldenwest Goods.

If you can’t make it to the pier on Saturday, you can always visit Smorgasburg at its regular location and time on Sunday.

The special Saturday Smorgasburg will take place from 11 a.m to 5 p.m. on March 11th at the Santa Monica Pier. Smorgasburg LA happens every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Alameda Produce Market.  The event is free, but bring cash for treats. For more information visit the website.
