Union Square has a year-round greenmarket, where you can sample goods from local farmers. It also has several playgrounds, a lively holiday market, and benches where you can watch a slice of New York go by.

Great place to eat lunch, feed the pigeons, see a protest or two, buy some great organic and locally grown fruits, vegetables and even some prepared meals. Not very cheap, but quality stuff made by small local bakers and farmers
We always stay at the W Union Square and I just love this outdoor space. Great space to go for a walk, people watch, check out the dog park. During the holiday season they have an adorable outdoor market with local vendors, food stalls &...More
Many small booths of unique items you usually won't find in stores. This variety alone is worth the visit for the holidays for some different gifts and ideas. It's all outside, so dress for the weather.
First time visiting this area during the holidays. What a great find. Many vendors selling their items including food. Came in the evening and wasn't crowded. While shopping, enjoyed hot apple cider and a hot chocolate to take away. Well worth the visit for anyone.
Union Square has the most gorgeous Christmas market that is deceptively big - it doesn't seem like a lot of stalls from the outside, but going around every single one will take you a while. There isn't a lot of sense to the layout (i.e....More
Great place for gifts and stocking stuffers. Can also fill the pantry at Farmer’s Market. Crowd not for the claustrophobic. Some unusual gifts. Try the Hungarian glass oil and vinaigrette artistic dispensers. A great gift for the vegans on your list.

I personally think Union Square is too far from the Freedom Tower and 911 to walk to. Central Park is even further away. In either case you'll be most likely using the subway or taxi. Central Park is close to the Museum mile (Met, Moma, Frick, Natural History) and Columbus Circle. Union Square is closer to Greenwich Village, Soho, China Town, Empire State Building, Highline. Rockefeller Center, Times Square, and Broadway are in between the two locations you mentioned. As far as restaurants go, regardless of where you stay, there's an overabundance of places to eat in any price range.
