It’s not too early to start putting a dent in that Christmas list.

The Union Square Holiday Market, one of New York’s biggest annual holiday markets, officially returned for the season today.

The festive outdoor market features hundreds of unique, red-and-white-striped booths with vendors selling everything from handmade ornaments to intricate blown glass.

In addition to discovering one-of-a-kind gifts, you can also explore some brand-new sections at this year’s market including a “Little Brooklyn” and Urbanspace Provisions. There will also be live music throughout the holiday season as well tasty food vendors like Sigmund’s pretzels and Bar Suzette.
