While the East Coast temps remain unseasonably high, the presence of the cheery holiday market in Union Square serves as a much-needed reminder that it is, in fact, December. Looking for the perfect hostess gift, or a present for the home-cook in your life? If you're in N.Y.C., stop by the Food52 Holiday Market nestled on the corner of 17th Street and Union Square West. The pop-up gift store runs from Dec. 3 to 20 and features vintage kitchen finds, snacks, and even a screening of Home Alone.
The market is also holding events throughout the next two weeks, including book signings, gift guiding, and a pie-latticing tutorial (online sign-up required). It may not be mitten weather yet, but the twinkling lights, warm baked goods, and pine needle aroma wafting through Union Square prove that the holiday spirit is alive and well.
