Monday Mischief-Union Square Holiday Market Foodie Adventure

On Sunday we packed up Weasley to go to the Union Square Holiday Market that pops up every November and December.   Its an expanded version of the regular Farmer's Market with lots of nice shops and tasty foods.

Weasley is such a calm commuter now that he stayed perfectly quiet in his stroller on the crowded path train:

The market was all decorated for Christmas Weasley posed by the trees and listened to the Carolers

It was very crowded and filled with plenty of interesting smells.

We saw a couple of dogs at the market, including this cute Frenchie named Leo.

There was a stand of fancy loose teas, they must have had about 60 different kinds.

There was some nice food too, we tried a feta stuffed  pretzel from Sigmund's Pretzels,

an Earl Grey Macaron from a stand whose name I forgot (the french cookie kind not Macaroons which are those coconut things) that really did taste like Earl Grey tea , Captain Picard's favorite  and mine too,

 a waffle from the Waffles and Dinges Cart, it was the one that won the Food Network Throw down from Bobby Flay,

 and best of all a delicious French Style Hot Chocolate from No Chewing Allowed, they put a truffle at the bottom 

and it comes in a cute cup.   Its thick and rich, well worth the five dollars.

There were a lot of clothing and art stands and some really cute wool ornaments, but it was so crowded I couldn't get a good picture.

My favorite stand was Hazel Village where they make these really cute stuffed dolls.  They can be monogramed and you can customize the outfits.  I was sorely tempted to buy one and took their card for future reference.

Weasley was very tired out when we got home, ready for a nap.


  1. That is one cool market and I am drooling over the keyboard at the sight of those pretzels. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. So much fun! Wish we had something like that here...great place for a dawgie adventure as well as a source of super great eats

  3. That's a great looking market! I didn't know dogs could ride on the metro. They definitely can't do it down here in DC.

  4. What a cool place! Weasley is such a wonderful model and that picture of him on the train is adorable! I would have been sorely tempted by the dolls too. You'll have to let us know if you get one in the future.

  5. Wow, what a fantastic market. I would spend a fortune there. I love your PJ's so cute :) xx00xx

  6. what american-taste-buds-style macarons? i've never seen snickers, nutella,or red velvet ones, they must be sooooo delicious. i've only ever had the typical french ones, like raspberry filling. i really like your stroller btw. yuki's and rocket's stroller is huge, now if only i could shrink them down and get one like yours.....

  7. What a wonderful market! Such a great variety of everything. Weasley is turning out to be such a good boy! :)

  8. What a cool place. I can see why he enjoyed it so much.

  9. Weasley, you are so cute in your stroller and are so lucky that you get to go to special places like that!
    I wish I could be calm like you- then I could go more places too.

  10. What a fun market to visit!!!

  11. So much fun right up my alley! Wish I could have joined you!

  12. That looks like a great adventure, we love Weasley in his pushchair, one of those would be good for Dip!

  17. What a wonderful outing!Wish there were places like that around here... BTW, Wesley is very cute in his jacket!!

  18. I LOVE how you take your dogs on various adventures around the city and on the subway! I rode on a city bus once, but never the subway.

    By the way, my assistant's first apartment in NYC was at 15th street and third avenue two blocks from Union Square! This post makes her miss living there!

    Your pal, PIp

  19. That's a nice market. Wish we had something like that here. I love Weasley's Pajamas and coat they are adorable.
