New York's beloved holiday shopping destination is returning to Union Square this season! The Union Square Holiday Market by Urbanspace will feature over 150 local artisan vendors selling one-of-a-kind, handcrafted items from artwork and jewelry to gourmet foods and drinks. It's the ultimate stop to find a treat for yourself or holiday gifts for loved ones. 

The market opens Thursday, November 16th and runs through Christmas Eve (daily hours listed below). Join millions of New Yorkers to browse the winding aisles and discover eclectic and unique holiday gifts. You'll find handcrafted home goods like olivewood bowls and Swedish dishcloths, winter accessories like wool scarves and handmade hats, and quirky gifts for kids like wooden puzzles and wacky puppets. Warm up afterwards with authentic Persian soup, warm sweet or savory crepes, and rich hot chocolate.
