New York City's Holiday Shopping Markets and Fairs offer visitors (& locals!) a wonderful way to get some holiday shopping done. Each market has its own collection of vendors, but they all offer shoppers the opportunity to buy holiday gifts for family and friends. Most of the vendors at these holiday markets are smaller operations -- you won't find reps from Target or Macy's hocking merchandise -- which means you'll have the opportunity to buy unique presents, sometimes directly from the shop owners or creators themselves. The holiday markets feature a diverse array of gifts, making it a great place to go if you want to buy for many different people on your holiday shopping list in one place.
