Weekend Holiday Market Picks: Where To Find Gifts for Food Lovers

This is it, kids: the last shopping weekend before Christmas! Luckily for us, many of our holiday markets are open until Christmas eve. But there are some fabulous specialty markets that are only happening this weekend or into early next week. So study this list and check it twice to make sure you get to all the markets that you need to visit!

For the food lovers on your gift list, you may have noticed the wonderful “Provisions” section at the Union Square and Columbus Circle Holiday Markets. This area is filled with packaged food vendors, selling wonderful products like truffle oil, salt water taffy, finishing sauces, honey and much more. Farm to People Co, is in the Provisions section at Union Square. They are a very exciting company because they carry small batch artisanal products, including many of my very favorites, like Trees Knees, Brooklyn Delhi Achaar, Beth’s Farm Kitchen, The Jam Stand, and P&H Soda Co., among many others.

Urbanspace is also hosting a Provisions Pop-Up inside their wonderful new Vanderbilt Food Hall. Shop from 15 local purveyors, and enjoy breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner in the food hall near Grand Central.

Another shout out for the Union Square Greenmarket Boutique on Saturday, where you can get great gifts and support your local farmers!
