Have you started your holiday shopping yet? Since New York is one of the greatest cities in the world, we have a ton of holiday markets and pop-ups to scope out for unique gifts. Etsy’s Handmade Cavalcade Holiday Market certainly makes our list as one of the best bazaars out there, and guess what? The market opens today!

This online retailer’s week-long run at Chelsea Market allows any impatient DIYers to grab creative handmade presents from more than 50 talented fashion, beauty and lifestyle crafters for everyone on your list or, hell, even yourself.
It really pays to be an early bird at this one—the first 100 shoppers on Saturday and Sunday will go home with a free goody bag of products, coupons and surprises from the vendors and sponsors.
And we definitely recommend hitting the fair on Thursday between the hours of 6:30 and 9pm during Etsy’s Sip 'n' Shop event with Brooklyn Brewery, where you can enjoy cocktails and pose for selfies in the holiday photo booth.
Chelsea Market, 410 W 16th St; Mon Dec 5–Sun Dec 11 10am–7:30pm; Free with R.S.V.P., $2 at the door
