Mercado Little Spain, the iconic food hall led by Chef José Andrés, is getting into the holiday spirit at Hudson Yards.

Boozy hot chocolate is available at all bars and pasteles kiosks. Each drink comes with a churro and is topped with dark rum infused Tres Leches Espuma. For the liquor add-in, choose between aged Caribbean rum, bourbon, single malt peaty scotch, or mezcal.

Visitors from November 25 through December 31 will also receive complimentary roasted chestnuts outside Mercado Little Spain every Friday to Sunday from noon to 3pm. For those visiting for Black Friday (November 24 through November 28) the entire Mercado Little Spain Goldbelly storefront will be 20% off.

Looking ahead to Three Kings Day (January 6), slices of roscón – a special holiday cake made once a year – will be available at all four restaurants inside Mercado: Spanish Diner, Leña, Mar and La Barra. In the spirit of the holiday, there will be actors dressed up around the Mercado handing out candy as well.

Pre-sale for full cakes ($40 per cake, $45/ per cake with whipped cream) begins December 1st with pickup on January 4-6 at Mercado Little Spain. If you’re outside of NYC, full cakes are available for purchase on Goldbelly ($99.95) with delivery beginning January 4th.
