Holiday Merriment at Union Square

By heba


It’s the most wonderful time of the year – especially for savvy shoppers, foodies, and techies in New York. The 2012 Union Square Holiday Market, presented by UrbanSpace, is now open for business! More than 150 unique New York businesses have gathered under the market’s distinctive red and white tents. The market features superior products, unparalleled local cuisine, and a fun atmosphere, attracting more than one million visitors from the United States and abroad. This year, the diverse array of products includes historical maps and prints, children’s apparel and toys, handmade jewelry, terrariums and holiday ornaments, among countless others. There are more food vendors than any year before, including Toby’s Estate Coffee, Momofuku Milk Bar, Arancini Bros, La Sonrisa Empanadas and many more, and some even offer Seamless delivery service in the area. There is also a “Little Brooklyn” section, featuring local handmade goods from across the Brooklyn Bridge.

Consumer Reports will also be conducting surveys about the featured vendors, in addition to hosting tech and product experts. The market even has it’s own app, which features a virtual market map and vendor directory, as well as a list of daily deals and a special events calendar.

The American Red Cross will also be collecting donations at the market information booth to assist those in the area affected by Hurricane Sandy.

The Union Square Holiday Market is open until Monday, December 24th, from 11:00am-8:00pm Monday through Friday, 10:00am-8:00pm Saturday, and 11:00am-7:00pm Sunday; closed on Thanksgiving Day.  Union Square is bordered by Park Avenue South, Broadway and 14th Street, and can be easily accessed by the 4, 5, 6, N, Q, R and L trains.
