Union Square is already an exciting square in New York City, but around the holidays, it gets even better. Every year, Union Square hosts a spectacular holiday market that will really knock your socks off. Twinkling lights surround the entire square along with the adorable vendor stalls that are installed.
The market opens about halfway through November and goes until Christmas Eve. It’s open every day until then though and doesn’t close until 8 pm or 9 pm on the weekends.
Throughout the market, you will find food stalls, drink stalls with special holiday-themed drinks, as well as tons of artisan vendors selling clothing, jewelry, toys, and more! The holiday market is the perfect place to go to get a present for someone special at any age, or even just to walk around and browse!
The spirit of the holidays is so alive at the holiday market, and it really does feel like you’re in a completely different place, not New York City at all. There’s so much to do and see and it’s all super exciting and festive. So take advantage of the holiday market while you can or else you’ll have to wait another year to see it come round again!
