The Four Best Things to Eat at the Columbus Circle Holiday Market
Sea Salt Caramels from Charley's Organic Toffees: Salted caramel is basically edible crack. You can never get enough, and before you know it, you've eaten the whole package of sweets. For gourmet snacking (or stocking stuffing), head to the Charley's Organic Toffees stand and pick up a package of the sea-salt caramels ($8). Soft and sweet with a fine crunch of salt, these buttery bites are perfectly balanced and downright delicious.
Lauren Shockey It's a sausage-fest! Well, a mini one.
Sausages from Charlito's Cocina: In addition to the sweet treats at the market, you'll find some super-tasty pork products. Charlito's Cocina sells all sorts of charcuterie favorites, from lardo to chorizo. One fave is the black-truffle salami ($15), which smacks of the musky fungi in the best way possible. Serve this as an hors d'oeuvre on Christmas. Or Hanukkah if you're a New York Jew (meaning delicious pork products are totally kosher).
