Every year before Christmas, NYC is full of holiday markets (Columbus Circle, Bryant Park, Union Square), and I have had the fortune to go to all of them. They are perfect for spending a chilly Saturday afternoon, wrapping your hands around hot chocolate, snacking on macaroons, and looking for Christmas gifts.

I really enjoyed the Union Square market the most… basically purchasing all the food… and tea… Be aware of some high prices, but there is never any harm in just looking!

Highly recommend the “Red Vanilla” tea, so good with milk!

These handmade soaps smell so good!

fresh (and beautiful) spices!

Bow ties make such good presents!

The most delicious macaroons

Unfortunately, Union Square is literally never NOT busy….

Sadly, these markets aren’t permanent, but it’s never too late to start planning for next November!
