This fair's six-week run features 40 booths operated by artists and businesses boasting everything from contemporary jewelry and art objects to African crafts and Christmas ornaments. And since it’s situated inside the terminal itself, you won’t have to worry about shivering while you’re browsing the goods. Highlights include Jacques Torres Chocolates ($6-$100), man candles ($30) from The Lode Man Shop and handcrafted knit and crocheted outerwear from Spratters & Jayne ($60-$325).

Really great place to buy a last minute gifts. Although grand central can be a nightmare it's great to have all of those vendors and stores in one place AND inside (unlike so many other Holiday markets). Prices are generally reasonable and every time I go I can find something for at least 2-3 members of my family and a few friends. 

Nothing holidays about it. Just a bunch of art and apparel vendors which may as well be year-round installments. It wasn't worth the detour, but if you've never been to Grand Central, it's worth it.

this is really worth a visit.  the vendors, for the most part, are very pleasant.  their wares are usually very different although rather expensive.  but, you're in one of the "royal" buildings in nyc..........GRAND CENTRAL........UTTERLY BEAUTIFUL  one could spend the whole day looking around, shopping, eating and just getting the right holiday vibe. very worthwhile.  if you're not too exhausted, take a walk...........if you're up to it,  to bryant park for their holdiay fair..........more shopping and munching.  bring money, a credit card or both.

uber holidays!
