The Essex Street Market is going all out for Christmas this year.

Greg’s Trees, one of the city’s oldest Christmas tree vendors, set up alongside the market right after the Thanksgiving holiday. They’ll be on site until Christmas.

Also, Santa will be making a visit to the Essex Street Market this coming Saturday, Dec, 3, from 3-7 p.m. The community is welcome to help decorate the tree Saturday afternoon. You can make your own ornament and help string holiday lights. There will be hot chocolate for everyone.

Coming up on Saturday, Dec. 10, there’s a Holiday Pie & Cheese Social hosted by Saxelby Cheesemongers and Four & Twenty Blackbirds ($15/tickets here).  And on Saturday, Dec. 17, Juilliard double bassist Karl Kohut and Manhattan School of Music’s Karly Epp will be performing in the market from 3-5 p.m.
