New York City's holiday markets are usually all fun and games– right up until it starts sleeting and your pea coat gets soaked through.
Also less cute? Shopping in freezing temperatures, no matter how many hot chocolates you drink, you're bound to be wishing for an alternative.
"What? It's not even snowing yet?" You might be thinking. Don't worry. It will.
Lucky for us, The Grand Central Terminal Holiday Fair re-opened for the season yesterday– and it's all indoors.
Grand Central's Holiday Fair is one of the longest-running indoor holiday fairs in NYC, providing unique wares and last minute Christmas presents since 1993.
Whether you're a commuter killing time before your train or you're seeking refuge from Bryant Park's Holiday Village, you're bound to find all the holiday goodies you need right in the middle of Grand Central.
The 40 carefully selected vendors will be selling artwork, clothing, accessories, toys, home goods, and more. Their range of products and price points will satisfy New Yorkers and tourists alike– this isn't just I HEART NY tee shirts by any means.
You can find the Holiday Fair in Vanderbilt Hall, they'll be open every day until Christmas, except for Thanksgiving Day.
For one day only, on Wednesday, November 23rd they will also be opening a Thanksgiving Market at the Grand Central Taxi Stand. You can pick up all your Thanksgiving desserts from popular vendors like Zaro's, Magnolia Bakery, Financier Patisserie, and more right before you go home.
