Food52 Holiday Market

December 3 to 20, 2015 • NYC

The Food52 Holiday Market—pop-up gift store of the century, respite for all weary and cookie-loving passersby—is back (and bigger)! You're invited to shop our gifts in person, from our most beloved cooking supplies to handsome new home goods.

Expect lots of Food52 exclusives, including a whole mess of vintage goodies—think Dansk baking dishes and storied old copper pots—that we rummaged from the Food Network's prop closet archives (yes, really!). We'll be handing out popcorn and warming up the projector for holiday movies, while Amanda, Merrill, and some very special guests will host demonstrations, play personal shopper to anyone who needs a gift guide, and sign books. Won't you stop by?
