SOUTH STREET SEAPORT — Smorgasburg's lineup of food vendors is heading back to the South Street Seaport this summer — but this time, the artisanal bites will be served indoors.

About six food vendors will set up inside the Fulton Market Building, at 11 Fulton St. this season, Eric Demby, the co-founder of the Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg said Tuesday evening.

"We're really happy to be back, but this year [Howard Hughes Corporation, the Seaport's owner] decided to bring us indoors," Demby told Community Board 1. "It'll still have the same feel, but with lots of seating indoors too."

Last year, the Smorgasburg vendors had lined up outside on Fulton Street. Demby said they will still have a bar outside, as well as "lots and lots of outdoor seating."

Smorgasburg's Seaport iteration plans to open Memorial Day weekend and will stay longer into the year, because of the indoor spot, running at least through November, Demby said.

He said the roster of vendors is still not set, but that there would be a mix of old and new. 

Last year, food sellers included Cemita’s Mexican sandwiches, Milk Truck grilled cheese, Pizza Moto and Red Hook Lobster Pound.

According to Smorgasburg's liquor license application, which the community board supported, food will include pizza, tacos, sandwiches, rice bowls, lobster rolls and French fries.

The Seaport’s owner, the Howard Hughes Corporation, brought in Smorgasburg — then called Smorgasbar — in 2013 as part of its Sea/Change program to revitalize the storm-battered neighborhood after Hurricane Sandy.
