Every holiday season Eater puts together extensive gift guides for the restaurant and food obsessives in your life, and this year we’re taking it a step further with two can’t-miss, in-person holiday markets. Our friends at Shopify are letting us take over their New York and Los Angeles spaces to bring you eight full days of bicoastal holiday shopping and programming.

No matter which pop-up you make it to, you can expect book signings and chats with our favorite cookbook authors, interactive tastings of everything from wine to chile oil, and demos from experts in coffee, spices, and more. And of course, there will be tons of food- and drink-inspired gifts from Shopify merchants like Omsom, Our Place, and Tilit to buy for everyone on your list, including yourself. It all starts on Saturday, December 10, and runs until December 18 (note: both markets will be closed Monday, December 12). Read on for more details on what you can find at both the New York and LA pop-ups, and come back to this page for programming updates.
