  • If you're around New York take a metro and go to the Chelsea market. Is a set of shops, markets and restaurants super charming. As we already had taken breakfast sat in a bar in there to take a white wine, we were very well attended and the wine was delicious.

  • I wouldn't go out of my way to visit here but we stumbled across it going to the High Line Park. As it turned out the entrance to the park across the street from the Market was closed and we had to wa...  more »
  • Is everything at Chelsea Market: restaurants like The Lobster Place or C&P Galley, cafes, bakery Sarabeth ´ s or Amy ´ s Bread, delicious and varied the Fat Witch brownies, chocolate in Li-Lac, decoration, kitchen utensils. In the area of the Lobster Place, there are a plethora of fresh fish selected. Good options for all budgets and tastes. We arrived on the scene after walking by the High Line and get off at 16th St. is located in a former factory of Oreo. The top commercial office work like YouTube.

  • Indoor shopping center with a lot of places to eat. It almost feels like a large food court with shops sprinkled around. The decor and atmosphere inside is very hipster with a combination of rustic and industrial design. They have a place inside where you can get oysters that seems pretty popular. Los Tacos is immensely popular with an extremely long line. Great place to walk around and see if anything piques your interest.
  • Visited in 2018, but I also visited the Chelsea Market years ago, just after it opened. Back then it had more interesting little shops and fewer eateries. It's still a great place, and worth a visit, but not quite as much to do there anymore except eat. Downstairs is a nice food market, though not the best prices in town, but good for grabbing some quick produce. The pizza we had upstairs was fabulous, as is the gelato.
  • Very nice spread especially for the food. There's a German sausage place, a hand pulled noodle place (I highly recommend here) a pizza place and a bread place, chocolate espresso...and too m to mention. Worth checking out.
  • Bustling with activity. There's a ton and a half of restaurants to discover. Good for indoors exploring when the weather is poor. You can also buy fresh produce. The building itself has a vintage charm. Almost steampunk.
  • If you're looking for something hipster, this is a great place. They have so much to offer and it's actually quite huge! I personally love Los Tacos No. 1, but the line can get out of hand though. It's that good, and also good enough to get on that line... If your friends are patient enough that is! The flea market has so many cool trinkets and stuff. It was a shame I don't have money to spend, but there are cheap and cool things to find in Chelsea Market if you intend to spend. What I didn't expect to see was a bookstore and also, a store for kitchen utensils. Both awesome places!
