DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN - The Brooklyn Eats Festival in Downtown Brooklyn hosted food vendors from across the borough to give residents a taste of local dining options.

Almost 100 food and drink vendors set up shop at the Marriott Hotel with products ranging from pickles to beer to chocolate — all produced locally.

There were stands for Mike's Hot Honey, a spice-infused version of the honeybee's sweetener, I.M. Pastry Studio and the Brooklyn Brewery.

Organizers say the event is for both networking and growing local businesses.

The festival is a trade show organized annually by the chamber of commerce.

Entry costs $10.
