The most beautiful Christmas markets in New York

Christmas market New York

The best Christmas markets NYC has to offer

I love Christmas time in New York City, it is one of the most festive and beautiful times of the year. It's also a shopping paradise, not just for designer clothes and electronic toys - if you like unique items, artisan gifts, handicrafts and souvenirs, you've come to the right place.

From mid-November to January, Christmas markets are held throughout the city, selling jewelry, clothing, crafts, and more. If you don't want to do much shopping, go for the atmosphere, many markets offer fantastic food and warm drinks.

1. Columbus Circle Holiday Market

Columbus Circle Holiday Market

I love this Mark for one simple reason, it's at the top of Central Park and it feels like Kevin alone in New York. The ice skating rink in Central Park is close, the Plaza Hotel and 5th Ave., all the places that made the film famous.

Opening hours : Monday to Saturday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Sunday 10 a.m. - 7 p.m.; closes on December 24th at 4 p.m.

The Dyker Heights Christmas Lights

2. Bryant Park Winter Village

Bryant Park Winter Village

For me it is the most romantic place in the Big Apple! In the middle of the skyscrapers in this small park, the view is breathtaking, the ice skating rink is the center of the market, around it there are numerous small glass houses that sell delicious food and sweet little things, many of them handmade. Our Dyker Heights Christmas Lights Tour ends near here.

3. Union Square Holiday Market

Union Square Holiday Market

The view of the Empire, close to the Village, I think that's why it's New Yorkers' favorite Christmas market. There is also a fairly large market with a funky atmosphere, over 100 vendors fill the park and here you can find really unique things, many with New York motifs and themes.

In recent years I have found items such as hand-blown glassware. Bags and accessories made from recycled plastic (environmentally friendly!), always lots of handmade jewelry, Tibetan handicrafts and much more!

Operating time : Until December 24th
Opening hours : Monday to Friday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Sunday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; closes at 4pm December 24th.

6. Holiday Market at the Oculus

Holiday Market at the Oculus

A visit to New York is not complete without visiting the World Trade Center. The most expensive train station on the planet, Oculus, is located there. Completely white, the train station looks like a spaceship from the inside. There, probably the most photogenic Christmas market in New York is built out of small futuristic glass houses.
