About our food purveyors:
Eagle St. Rooftop Farms - On the shoreline of the East River and with a sweeping view of the Manhattan skyline, Eagle Street Rooftop Farm is a 6,000 square foot green roof organic vegetable farm located atop a warehouse rooftop in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. During New York City’s growing season, the farmers at Eagle Street Rooftop Farm supply a community supported agriculture (CSA) program, an onsite farm market, and bicycle fresh produce to area restaurants.
In partnership with food education organization Growing Chefs, the rooftop farm hosts a range of farm-based educational and volunteer programs.
Lukas Volger – An expert vegetarian, Volger is the author of “Veggie Burgers Every Which Way” and “Vegetarian Entrees That Won’t Leave You Hungry” and a member of the Local Roots CSA. He will be presenting a demo on how to perfect a Zucchini – Almond Burger.
Cathy Erway - An avid amateur cook, she decided to purge her diet from restaurant or take-out food and began blogging about it on Not Eating Out In New York in 2006. In between posting recipes for the busy-but-thrifty, she explored the underbelly of the city’s home-cooking culture, visiting urban farms, foraging, trash-diving and hosting cook-offs and supper club dinners. In the end, she came away with a greater conscience about where food comes from, what it takes to produce it, and most importantly, how to have a great time cooking it with others. Beyond her popular blog, she is also the author of The Art of Eating In and hosts a weekly radio show, Let’s Eat In.
Landhaus – A haven for sandwiches, Landhaus can be found at Smorgasburg every Saturday featuring lamb burgers and grilled bacon skewers.
