The Holiday Shops at Bryant Park

The Holiday Shops at Bryant Park are open.  Get your fill of cheer with numerous booths of local and handmade jewelry, ornaments, scarves and hats, housewares and more, including one of my favorites–St. Petersburg Collections with Russian ornaments.

There’s the skating rink and the restaurant and lounge, Celsius, if you want to get in from the cold.

This year, there are many food booths to keep the foodie happy.  There are plenty of artisan food purveyors here.  Have some gruyere grits at Daisy Grits.  There’s TopArepa with toppings to make your arepa sweet or savory.  Get a warm baked apple strudel at Strudels & Pies by Hans.

Max Brenner’s

There’s plenty of chocolate, including Max Brenner, Raaka Chocolate from Brooklyn and No Chewing Allowed.  Get a pickle from a barrel at Pickle Me Pete.

There’s also churros, Turkish food, vegetarian food, kettle corn, doughnuts, macarons, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, crepes and artisan soft pretzels in flavors like cinnamon raisin or truffles and cheese.

Of course, there’s an apple cider stand. The longest line I saw was at Wafels & Dinges; no surprise people want a hot waffle on a cold night!

You can even find foodie home decor at Brazilian Home Collection.
