Holiday craft fairs and markets are a fun way to shop for seasonal gifts, offering handmade and one-of-a-kind items not found in most stores. Booths are often 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, a tour of a historic mansion, or a drive-thru holiday light show? Maybe feast on German food, drink hot chocolate (or mulled wine), or meet Santa? Just be sure to include a purchase for yourself in the budget!
