Holiday Craft Fairs and Markets in Westchester and the Hudson Valley

Holiday craft fairs and markets offer a fun way to shop for seasonal gifts, with handmade and one-of-a-kind items not found in most stores. Often, these artisan booths are staffed by the maker, allowing insight into the creative process, and many benefit a charitable cause. Below we've identified holiday fairs and markets in Westchester and Hudson Valley this November and December.

As you peruse our roundup of indoor and outdoor settings, you'll find some of these fairs offer added perks to round out an outing. Why not choose a market that's held in conjunction with a holiday train show, or a tour of a historic mansion, or a drive-thru holiday light show? Maybe feast on German food and hot chocolate (or mulled wine)? Just be sure to include in your budget a purchase for yourself!

Looking for more ways to enjoy the holiday season? You can find plenty more holiday happenings in our Holiday Guide and activities calendar.
