Are you looking for an indoor place wherein you can explore an array of retailers—sampling tasty foods and treats, admiring seasonal décor and perhaps doing a little shopping—all under one roof? Pay a visit to Chelsea Market in the Meatpacking District, and you'll see why it's worthy of numerous return trips, all year round.

Chelsea Market - 75 Ninth Avenue

Located on Ninth Avenue, between 15th and 16th streets in Manhattan, Chelsea Market is home to various shops, including some local purveyors of sweet treats.


Head over to Eleni's, a nut-free sweet shop that lives up to its mantra, "Playfully unique cookies". Since 1997, their hand-iced sugar cookies decorated in themes or special occasions, plus seasonal colors and shapes grace the store shelves.

Stop by to see and purchase seasonal and holiday cookies.

Cupcakes also delight the crowd of visitors that frequent Eleni's.

Set against a backdrop of white and cheery pink walls, sugary treats sit atop a center table. Colorful lollipops, candies, jellybeans and other goodies are sure to satisfy your craving for something sweet to take on the road.

Grab one of these treats for your trip home.

Jacques Torres Chocolates

For decadent treats from a master gourmet chocolatier, don't forget to stop by Jacques Torres Chocolates where handcrafted creations, such as chocolate-covered holiday-shaped treats, squares and Champagne-filled options will delight your taste buds.

Order a cup of Wicked or classic hot chocolate at the bar.

Treat your loved ones to a container of chocolate chip cookies, a bar or box of chocolates, a package of cookie mix for them to bake at home or a tin of 100% chocolate powder for that comforting cup of hot chocolate.

Their Bean to Bar contains small cocao bean nibs.

With such delicious options, you really can't go wrong—regardless of what you choose to gift someone.

So many delicious options.

Fat Witch Bakery

If you love brownies, Fat Witch Bakery is the place for you. Since 1991, the venue has been serving individually wrapped brownies, which are free of preservatives or icing—just the wholesome goodness of natural ingredients.

Up until 5 p.m., saunter over to the counter for a free sample. Then, choose from among their Big Witch flavor offerings, including their original brownie, or a Cappuccino chocolate chip-laden Java Witch, or perhaps a square with caramel or dried cherries.

Fat Witch Walnut (unwrapped) - 3.8 ounces

Visit the shop during the "Witching Hour" from 5 p.m. until the market closes, and get an even sweeter deal. Unwrapped brownies are discounted, so fill your take-home box with eight squares—a great way to end a tough day at work.

What fun, Cristina! Alas - I only saw the Chelsea Market from our walk on the High Line. After reading your post, I'm really sorry I missed out on enjoying all these sweets ~
