With the holiday season in full swing, a New York City holiday staple is making its return this week.
The Union Square Holiday Market is kicking off on Nov. 16, bringing a variety of vendors to the neighborhood. Run by Urbanspace, the Union Square Holiday Market boasts over 150 local vendors, giving shoppers the chance to buy local for the holidays.
The market covers a variety of local gifting options, including handcrafted works from local artisans, gifts with a New York twist and delicious giftable treats that you want to keep for yourself. Shoppers can also take a break and enjoy food and beverages from vendors available at the market.
