Ho ho ho holidays.  If you  have never been to the Union Square Holiday Marketplace, it is definitely worth a trip.  If you only have a few minutes, take a brisk stroll through the splendor that abounds in the form of unique gifts and delectable morsels.

I had 10 minutes to dash through today, and I found these super cute hand warming gel pacs by Wonder Warmers and scarfed down a cinnamon raison soft pretzel.

In my haze, I passed soup vendors, tea shops, a Momofuku Milk Bar outpost, craft items, unique bags, scarves, jewelry and mini cannoli.  There is a wide range of prices and merchandise.  Support your local vendors and buy some one of a kind gifts!  Click here to see a map/ guide.

The company that holds this market is called Urban Space.  They also were the organizers of Mad Sq. Eats, the scrum-diddly-umptious outdoor eating experience in Madison Square Park this past fall.

Urban Space also has a market in Columbus Circle.  I hope it is half as funky and festive as the Union Square outpost.  Click here to learn more!

Happy shopping!
