  • This market, in which there are restaurants, specialty shops, a shop for kitchenware, a bookstore, etc. is located in an old factory building. Especially in bad weather or in connection with the Highline Park worth a detour!

  • We were here years ago and it was somewhat sparse in the number of stores. Now it is great with all sorts of stores and restaurants. Quite an attraction to see. If you want an unique experience shop a...  more »

  • 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!
