The Union Square Holiday Market opened up last Thursday for the holiday season, and will remain open daily until Christmas Eve. Hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays, and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sundays.

As usual, food vendors make up a significant part of the market, with standouts like Taste of Persia and Momofuku Milk Bar participating alongside market regulars like Sigmund's and Bar Suzette, plus some creative gift offerings from the likes of City Shuffle and Brooklyn Brew Shop.
