    Make sure to stop and try La Sonrisa Empanadas! Best empanadas and great snack while walking around the market!

    Seems to get bigger every year. Smells terrific, thanks to the stalls selling baked goods, soap/ body care/ shaving products, teas and spice, etc. Hot apple cider is a must.

    Check out kudu-lah for whimsical handmade art featuring monster-like critters juxtaposed in original photography. All the critters have names and bios too! Booth #8 near 15th / union sq. west

    the hot chocolate from "no chewing allowed!" is the best i've *ever* had. be sure to have them add a chocolate truffle for $1 extra! mmm.

    Holy damn the hot chocolate from "No Chewing Allowed!" is AMAZING. Come at night, get yourself a cup and wander around the beautiful handcrafted wares.

    More crafts and gift stands, but plenty of warm and delicious food, like hot Sigmund's Pretzels, Bar Suzette crepes, Arancini Brothers' arancini, and more!

    Lots of vendors, but the selection had gotten less diverse and more expensive every year. Yummy snack options- hot apple cider is my favorite.

    A great market that closes at 8PM on weekdays. Less crowded than the market by Columbus Circle. Support local artisans.

    It's true ... everything will be expensive because most of it is artisanal and handmade. Definitely try out the food stands!

    Pro-tip: Yes, they'll take credit cards. But if you're in marathon-shopping mode, save yourself some time and take out cash beforehand!

    I'm on the fence about this holiday market. The ambiance is amazing, but the cost for everything is highly overpriced, except the hot food items.
