New York City has several of everything, including pop-up holiday shops, but we’re going to go ahead and say the Union Square Holiday Market is the one not to miss (and not just because we can walk there from Waterside)! With over 150 local as well as national vendors, selling everything from family-recipe French truffles to jewelry made from real flowers, the Union Square Holiday Market has that quality we really like in NYC: personality for days.

The Union Square Holiday Market is open November 20 – December 24, 2014, but we recommend you go before the last-minute holiday shoppers descend so you can spend time strolling among the twinkling, red-and-white aisles, taking in the holiday spirit and probably some freshly sugared mini-doughnuts because who could resist? Also go by on a weekday night to best avoid the crowds–every kind of handmade, fair-trade, small-batch ware in art, jewelry, food, home decor, and gifts for men, women and children will be available for your browsing pleasure. The market is open Mon – Fri 11am–8pm, Sat 10am–8pm and Sun 11am–7pm.
