What to Eat at the Holiday Shops at Bryant Park

Winter in New York means that your public parks get a holiday makeover. On 6th Avenue and 42nd Street, Bryant Park boasts a giant Christmas tree that towers over a 17,000 square foot ice skating rink. Surrounding the plaza is a village of more than 100 Holiday Shops. The food is served up by veteran market pop-ups like Waffels and Dinges, Crepe Cafe, and Kettle Corn NYC as well as some equally delicious but lesser known vendors like Toparepa, Daisy's Grits, and Mmm... Enfes.

Check out the slideshow above to see what tasty treats you can snack on while you're shopping for handmade soaps and fuzzy slippers. The market runs every day through the holidays, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
