Kick off the holiday season in Harlem with the Harlem Night Market at La
Marqueta, created through a partnership between NYC Public Markets (run by NYC EDC),
Uptown Grand Central, TBo Harlem & Union Settlement.
This season’s edition returns Saturday, December 3, with an expanded number of vendors
across three blocks of the market under the train tracks at Park Avenue, plus neighborhood-
favorite DJs Stormin’ Norman, Ted Smooth and friends warming up the dance floor.
This year, there will be more family fun than ever before — including visits with Santa all three
weekends, a bounce house and Harlem Night Market 360-degree photo booth. On December
10, take a trolley from the market to El Museo del Barrio and the East Harlem Holiday Tree. On
December 17, hop the trolley to our pop-up ice skating rink at Uptown Grand Central’s 125th
Street community plaza, which now features a new light installation by NightSeeing called
Shoppers will be able to support more than 50 local makers and chefs with booths inside La
Marqueta’s retail market (114th/115th streets), the La Placita event space (115th/116th streets),
and Urban Garden Center (116th/117th streets). See below for the list of vendors.
On the second and third weekends, the Harlem Night Market will also connect to points of
interest north and south along the Park Avenue Viaduct. Trolleys will run along Park Avenue,
traveling south toward El Museo del Barrio at 105th Street and East Harlem Holiday Tree at
106th Street (December 10), and north to 125th Street to the pop-up ice skating rink and
“Uptown Flash” light installation at Uptown Grand Central community plaza (December 17).
Trolley pick-up and drop-off will be at 115th Street, which has served as an Open Street this
past season. Entry to the trolley, El Museo and the ice rink are free, though attendees are
