A Guide To All The Holiday Markets Opening In NYC This Season

One of the best things about the holiday season in the city is our amazingly festive holiday markets!

Since October ended, a number of holiday markets, ice rinks, and themed-bars have quickly been popping up across New York City. And as Christmastime approaches, we’ll begin to see hordes of tourists flock to most of these holiday destinations and, of course, the Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting Ceremony. If you don’t mind maneuvering through some crowds for a slice of the city’s Christmas spirit you should definitely check out these holiday markets when they open. Have we mention most of them have top notch hot chocolate vendors, too? An absolute must for sipping while perusing the shops on those cold winter days!
