The famous Union Square Holiday Market is one of the biggest holiday markets in the city. From mid November until Christmas the market on Union Square attracts lots of visitors from all over the world.

Especially on the weekends the crowds at the Union Square Holiday Markets remind us of Black Friday shopping in the city. It does get pretty crowded, so keep that in mind, when you’re looking for a great time to visit the holiday market. During the weekend it’s much slower compared to weekends.
