It was a great day to wonder around and look at all there was to offer for many different merchants. I got the Greenmarket app on my phone to see what vendors were there. I ended up buying a bottle of whiskey from a local distillery.

I have been going here for years but never rated it on TripAdvisor. This green market is my favorite of any I have been to in New York City. Although it is open on a few days during the week (Wednesday, Friday at least), there are not nearly as many local vendors during the week as there are on Saturdays.... More

If you want to get an overall aerial view of the Saturday Farmers Market at Union Sq., and score a visit to the restroom at the same time, checkout the top floor of DSW across the street. Take the elevator, not the escalator to save time. Once there, you'll get a bird's eye view of the Market and score a... More

I'll say this about it. If you are in New York and you're close by, definitely visit the Union Square Green market. But if you have to take a long ride with public transport or you have something else planned. Don't take extra time out of your schedule to go there. It's nice, it's fun to see, no more, no... More

This is a really nice change of pace and tastes in the city. There are all kinds of things to look at and try, but most of all are the people, of course, and you could amuse yourself just seeing all the different ways people try to assess the freshness of produce. Prices are okay, but depending on the time... More

When we visited in December many of the produce stalls were filled with jewelry, clothing, art, you name it. So many interesting and unusual gift items in one place. We enjoyed walking around sipping hot cider while shopping. The people watching was top notch.

There is a holiday market at Union Square which is just great. All kinds of mini-stalls from coffee to donuts; scarves to carvings; jewelry to unique designer clothing. In other words everything to satisfy your holiday shopping requirements. The various offerings are very reasonable and one of a kind. The vendors are very personable and there are so many samplings.Part... More

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighbourhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighbourhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being the home of a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
