Shop These Spirited Holiday Markets in Austin

As the holiday season is getting into full swing that means a few things — dazzling lights, cooler weather, hot drinks, and — of course — holiday markets! Austin is full of these adorable pop-up markets where you can find the absolute best gifts, art, decoration, and so many other unique hand-crafted items. These are the Austin holiday markets you won’t want to miss this winter!

Armadillo Christmas Bazaar

900 Barton Springs Rd, Austin, TX 78704

Every year at the Palmer Events Center there is a spectacular 3-day long market known as the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar. It runs from December 17th — December 19th (on a weekend!) and showcases art from national and local award-winning artists, jewelry, clothing, decor, beauty, and tons of other goods perfect for everyone on your list. The event will also have live music and a full holiday pop-up bar!

Blue Genie Art Bazaar

6100 Airport Blvd, Austin, TX 78752

Blue Genie’s holiday market kicked off right on Black Friday, and it’s one of the best markets in town for one-of-a-kind items — they have everything. There are literally thousands of fantastic pieces to choose from, and if heading inside the bazaar itself feels a little overwhelming, they also have options for shopping online and even getting a personal shopper to give you a hand! 

Maggie’s Holiday Market

1101 Music Ln, Austin, TX 78704

Maggie’s Holiday Market is taking place this Saturday, December 11th, from 12:00 – 5:00 pm. It’s an open air event, complete with a DJ, on the lawn of Hotel Magdalena. One of the best holiday markets in Austin is a little bit smaller than some of the others in town, but Maggie’s always has excellent vendors.

The Front Market

7107 E Riverside Dr, Austin, TX 78741

The Front is an open-air market taking place at Ani’s Day and Night this weekend (December 11th and 12th), and the theme is “Santa Baby.” They’re doing a full brunch, plus drag performances, and the market will have 30 local vendors showcasing women and LGBTQ + artists and designers.

Lone Star Holiday Market

12700 Hill Country Blvd, Bee Cave, TX 78738

The Lone Star Farmers market has had a holiday makeover! Every Sunday from 10:00am – 4:00pm you’ll be able to shop your regular farmers market vendors and plenty of additional holiday-themed vendors bringing with them gifts, art, and foodstuffs.

Kinda Tropical Vintage Market

3501 E 7th St, Austin, TX 78702

Restaurant and cocktail bar Kinda Tropical’s next market is this Saturday, December 11th from 12:00 – 6:00 pm. They’ll have vintage clothes, home goods, jewelry, and more! It’s not 100-percent one of the holiday markets in Austin, as they have pop-up events all the time, but it is an excellent place to look around for gifts!
