Union Square Holliday Market

Christmas in New York means lots of crowds and special events one we visit ever is the Union Square Holliday Market.  This is an expanded version of the regular Union Square farmer's and I love that its outdoors and dog friendly.   Since its so crowded its a one dog only affair and we brought Weasley because he is the families best traveler and we had to take the path train from NJ to Manhattan.

By Now Weasley is a seasoned commuter

 We got their early  but the market was packed to the gills with crowds checking out the craft stands and food stalls.

This stand is my favorite, Hazel village makes adorable hand crafted stuffed animals.  I bought a raccoon for a small child.  They sell all their animals online as well.


There is a lot of food as well, we had Belgian Waffles


Weasley was very eager for a taste but the waffle had chocolate on it.  A rather odd man came up to us and insisted that we should give Weasley a waffle.  When I told him that chocolate was bad for dogs he then insisted that as he had squirrels who ate chocolate that must not be true.   He argued his point for several minutes while we avoided eye contact, ahh New York.



 After shopping and eating we took Weasley to the Union Square dog park where he played with the Manhattan pups for a bit,

  7. Your fur coat is sublime!!! What a fun event! It's great that they allow dogs. Our local farmer's market (which is held on part of Main Street each Saturday morning during the warmer months) does as well and we're hoping to bring Annie for her first time when the market starts up again next year.

  8. That's a really nice market! I might go to a craft market this weekend but it's indoor and won't let dogs in.

    1. No becuase we rotate a lot, Weasley loves to travel by train but the others no. We always take everyone for a walk first

  14. Weasley you are one very lucky doggie. That looks like so much fun. We wish we had a place like to visit. We would need a leash for our Mom to make sure she didn't look at one booth too long :)
