A special holiday market with hundreds of vendors is coming to the Upper West Side this weekend.
The Grand Holiday Bazaar will take place on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. within the schoolyard at the corner of Columbus Avenue and West 77th Street.
The Grand Bazaar takes place year round at the location, but it takes on a special holiday theme for its next two events.
Here are reasons the organizer gives for why you might want to attend:
- Over 350 local merchants to shop from.
- The market offers both indoor and outdoor shopping experiences.
- Options include homemade candles, skincare, stationary, clothes, handbags, jewelry, furniture, vintage accessories, antique silver and glassware, and artisanal treats.
- Multiple food trucks and other culinary options.
Additionally, all of the Grand Bazaar’s profit are donated to four Upper West Side public schools, which benefit over 2,000 children.
The Grand Bazaar NYC was first launched as the GreenFlea Market in 1979 by a group of parents as a yard sale to raise funds for their kid’s schools. That makes it the oldest continuous market in New York City.
It is free to enter.
