Today the UrbanSpace blog is excited to bring you two, that’s right, two new and exciting vendors who will be presenting their goods at this year’s Union Square Holiday Market. The Good Batch and Liddabit Sweets will be sharing a booth and both will have batches and batches of tasty treats to satisfy not just your sweet tooth, but also your tangy tooth, your salty tooth, your smoky tooth…you get the idea. If you are looking for all-natural, local confections to fill your stockings (and your stomachs!), then this is the booth for you. Read More
I often try to reconcile my insatiable propensity for sweet treats by seeking out brands with the purest and simplest of ingredients. When the holiday season comes around, I’m always on the lookout for some guilt-free goodies to gift to friends and family. Upon making the rounds at this year’s Columbus Circle Holiday Market, I instantly took a liking to the guys behind For the Love of Pie. The fantastic team can be found offering up pie shots and brittle samples to hungry market visitors on a daily basis. We highly recommend stopping by their booth to hear an in person account of their “pielosophy”. Read More

They treasure their customers’ opinions and work to give them countless options in the kitchen. We couldn’t be more excited to have them participating in Urban Space’s Union Square Holiday Market.
