The nation’s largest open-air food market, Smorgasburg, is moving indoors to a Williamsburg venue next month.

The weekly grub fair will open at 25 Kent Ave., between N. 12 and N. 13th streets, on the second floor on Nov. 2, a staffer working inside the building told this reporter.

Smorgasburg’s alfresco events will run Saturdays in East River State Park and Sundays in Prospect Park until the end of October, before switching over to the new indoor venue without missing a beat the following weekend.

The nine-story office tower at 25 Kent Ave. — located just a few blocks away from East River State Park — has served local thrill-seekers as an events venue ever since it opened earlier this year, and is currently home to Halloween-themed pooch wonderland “Best Dog Day Ever,” where furballs can dress up in costume and drink non-alcoholic beer.

An exhibition on street art and graffiti also showed at the building in June, Gothamist reported.

Last winter, the foodie organizers moved their emporium to Fort Greene’s Atlantic Center Mall on weekends, along with a night market on Fridays at the Williamsburg event space Villain, with music performances and art exhibits curated by the media company Vice Media. That year’s indoor market featured about a quarter of the 100 vendors that hawked treats outdoors previously.

Smorgasburg’s organizers did not immediately return requests for comment.
