One of the city’s best markets is picking itself up and moving to a cozy indoor space, where you can find the best in local crafts, jewelry, festive gifts and food. Super nerd alert: The market is now accepting Bitcoins. However that works.

LAST WEEKEND: Juniper Ridge Pop-Up Shop

Thru 12/21 | Mon. – Friday | 12 to 8 p.m. and Sat. and Sun. | 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The “wilderness fragrance distillery” Juniper Ridge is bringing the nature and hiking trails of the West Coast to New Yorkers (we desperately need it), with a special pop-up shop. Along with live fragrance distillations on the street using plants Juniper Ridge has foraged and flown in directly from the California mountains, the pop up shop will feature a transporter booth where people can experience Juniper Ridge hikes through film footage, real foliage, and fragrances. Your manly fella will love it.
