Grand Central Holiday Fair

You don’t have to brave the crowds on Sixth Avenue (or the cold) for high-end gifts. The Grand Central Holiday Fair brings 40 artisans to Vanderbilt Hall selling everything from art to home goods, hand-crafted toys and fine clothing for men, women and children. The market has been going since 1993, with a focus on American-made goods and uniquely crafted items.

Union Square Holiday Market

Feel a world away from the gray, manic city as you wander among the festive candy cane-striped booths wrapped in holly at the Union Square Holiday Market, the largest seasonal market in the city. Look for the Artisan Pledge stickers to find U.S.-made organic, fair trade, recycled and handmade goods among the more than 150 vendors, an art studio for kids to design wrapping paper (and make cookies — never too early to learn multitasking) and a Little Brooklyn section for a taste of the borough.

There’s a market concierge to help you find the perfect gift. There’s of course food vendors, like newcomer Duck Season for all your waterfowl needs from confit to pâté, and the new Citi Holiday Lounge to sip hot chocolate while warming your hard-working feet.
