The Christmas Markets are Union Square are fantastic. Grab a hot apple cidre and explore the stalls. We loved it - so much to see, so much to buy!
I visited during the weekend with the Farmer Market. The market was nice but I didn't see a wide variety of foods that I have found in Ithaca Farmer Market. It was nevertheless a nice place to relax. Those with younger children do check out the playground. Mine have a great time climbing up the silver dome.
Union Square Park is a wonderful place to relax ,hear music and people watch .Possibly the best place for all three.
We recently stayed 1 blocked from Union Square - what a great area with restaurants, markets, subway station, benches, people watching and much more. Will stay in this area on next visit to NYC.

Just visited a week ago and found myself at a great little farmer market. Also only park with free wifi and nice place to get great food around (Wholefood market near by)... Recommended!
Stayed at the W, Union Square, so got to see the park every day. It's a major subway intersect, so easy to reach. Lots of good places to eat in the area, in all price ranges. We had pizza by the slice and ice cream at SMUSH, which were both very good. There are major chain stores, and smaller shops... More
We recently stayed close to Union Square. So pleased with the area. We found walking around this area very safe and the park was lots if fun. During market days there is a wonderful variety of products. Lots of variety in restaurants and shopping. So handy to the subway as well!
