The Union Square Holiday Market's Edible Delights
Now that Thanksgiving is officially over, it's time to start holiday shopping, and what better place for gifts than the Union Square Holiday Market? Yes, it's just as crowded as Wal-Mart come 5 a.m. on Black Friday, but, hey, at least the snacking options are better. Click through the photo series for the market's food-themed gifts and top eats.
Hansel and Gretel would approve.
The Hudson Valley's Breezy Hill Orchards is selling too-cute gingerbread boys and girls ($4.75) along with their beloved hot apple cider.
To go with your gingerbread boys and girls, buy a bottle of Kinder Punsch ($9). German Delights Inc. offers revelers cups of the non-alcoholic punch on-site, but for a not-so-kinder version at home, combine a few cups of bourbon or rum and some lemon slices with the warmed punch, and you've got yourself a holiday party.
Start boozing at home with Brooklyn Brew Shop's beer-making kit ($40). It'll make the holidays more tolerable.
