Finding the unique in New York is easy, but finding one of-a-kind things to take home, that’s the real treasure! While big department stores offer beautiful holiday displays, the products are often the same as what you can find at home. The holiday markets on the other hand are where you can discover creative products that are sometimes even a little bizarre.
They are the perfect place to shop for gifts for those difficult few who you never know what to get. Holiday markets offer a large variety of gift options and the festive atmosphere makes the experience all the more enjoyable. Instead of holiday shopping feeling like a chore, the markets make it an event that is fun for the whole family.
Some of our favorite holiday markets in the city are:
- The Grand Central Holiday Fair
- Winter’s Eve at Lincoln Square
- Columbus Circle Holiday Market
- The Holiday Shops at Bryant Park
- Crafts at the Cathedral
- Holiday Shopping in Union Square
- SoHa Holiday Market
These makeshift holiday villages that pop up all over the city are always a favorite amongst visitors and New Yorkers alike making them a must see during your stay in New York.
