Tired of shopping in the same spots all year? Take your kids to some fun pop-up stores and markets setting up shop around NYC for the holidays. Revisit some favorites like the holiday markets or check out a few new spots. The temporary shops below are fun for the whole family, and a great chance to stock up on some unique gifts for everyone on your list. Just remember—these shops won’t be here for long!

Social Justice Holiday Market

Over Big Mall and want to spend with political purpose? Head to the Social Justice Holiday Market at community space Mayday in Bushwick. Organizers describe the event as an indoor gathering of small vendors selling all things social justice-y, "so you don't have to buy corporate crap for your loved ones, and can instead uplift local artists, makers, and community-led efforts."

Dec. 16, Noon- 5 p.m.
176 St. Nicholas Ave.
