Are you tired of reading about me doing Christmas things? Because, while I never thought the day would come, I’m pretty tired of writing about them. So I promise this will be my last one. (For a couple of days.)
Tonight I headed to Union Square’s Holiday Market well aware that I’ve overdosed on festive cheer recently – and feeling a bit ridiculous for going to yet another Christmas event. But then I got there – and promptly realized that this market tops the others I’ve been to so far.
It meanders across the square between 14th and 17th Streets, overlooked by the Empire State Building.
It was deceptively huge. There were stands of jewels, snacks, hats, toys, artwork and plenty more…There were also plenty of stands perfect for stocking fillers – cute homeware, punny gifts and useless knick knacks. I stocked up to give Santa a hand.
There was also a handful of food stalls – Sigmund’s Pretzels, hot cider, crepes – but the focus was on the gifts, and those stands went on and on…
Definitely the best Christmas market I’ve been to so far this year – plenty of choice, lots of space and a good variety of prices. If you’re not Christmassed out yet (erm, like me), it’s definitely one to check out.
