Chelsea Market is a haven for foodies from all over, or just those looking to grab a snack before spending some time on the Highline. Unlike other markets, Chelsea Market is entirely indoors, so it's perfect to visit rain or shine. It is packed with some of the city's best culinary hot spots for any food lover out there. Located on the ground level of an historic building in Chelsea, the market is a great place to spend the day enjoying the tastes of the city.
Chelsea Market is more than just a shopping adventure, it also offers different entertainment options for visitors. They offer a variety of events to the public including tastings, cultural and historical tours of the shops, wine tastings, just to name a few. The Chelsea Market website is updated daily to properly inform the public on all upcoming events.
One of Chelsea Market's many great aspects, is the large variety of products available to visitors. You can wander through the stores lining both sides of the market's walkway and find culinary treats from all over the world as well as some New York City favorites. Amy's Bread, Buon Italia, and Jacques Torres Chocolates are just some of the local favorites found at Chelsea Market. If you don't want to cook any of the food yourself, then Chelsea Market is still the right place for you. Grab a meal at Buddakan or Morimoto, which are two of the city's top culinary spots. Then head over to L'Arte del Gelato and indulge in a gelato for dessert.
Also, you can find more than just food products. Bowery Kitchen Supply is a chef's dream come true, and offers an impressive array of quality cooking materials. The market is also home to Posman Books. "At this new independent bookstore, you'll find a terrific selection of bestsellers, literature, biographies, histories, cookbooks and travel guides, as well as stationery and cards," says the Chelsea Market website.
