Mid- to Late November–December 24
Each fall and winter, several holiday markets pop up around New York City, lending the gift-shopping experience a festive cheer. Sellers purvey everything from home furnishings to clothing, jewelry, ornaments and much more. The largest and most popular are located in Columbus Circle, Bryant Park, Grand Central Terminal and Union Square. The markets generally open in mid- to late November and close on December 24 (except Bryant Park, which opened in late October and closed in early January during the last holiday season).
