Many vendors frequently showcase their goods at the seasonal green markets, or at cafes or grocery stores throughout New York City. Among them is Ronnybrook Farm Dairy from the Hudson Valley area, which provides market visitors and local venues with fresh dairy products direct from their Ancramdale, New York farm. Thankfully, its storefront, Ronnybrook Farm Dairy Milk Bar, sits within Chelsea Market on Ninth Avenue, ensuring patrons can avail of its premium items within an indoor venue in the Big Apple all year long.

One of the many drawings by kids hang within Ronnybrook Farm Dairy Milk Bar at Chelsea Market.

After walking around Chelsea Market in the Meatpacking District, drop by and replenish your energy at this casual eatery. Upon entering, you'll notice that this milk bar draws upon its niche market to create a kid-friendly dining venue. Stacked wooden milk crates surround three walls, upon which drawings by its young patrons hang to accent its family-friendly decor.

Drawings along the milk crate walls add to the kid-friendly setting.


Drop by for breakfast, a snack, lunch, or dinner comprised of sandwiches, pasta, mac and cheese, soups and salads.

Sit along the counter overlooking the main hallway and watch the activity in the market.

Enjoy your food while people watching.

Or choose seats encircling the open station, where coffee is brewed, and the sweet menu items are blended, mixed, scooped onto cones, or shaken.

Watch the staff put some menu items together at the open station at the center of the venue.

How about finishing off your meal with some delicious frozen treats? Perhaps some ice cream, a key ingredient for an array of shakes, soda floats, and sundaes, or served on its own atop a cone.

Of course, it wouldn't be a milk bar without Ronnybrook Farm dairy products, including milk in old-fashioned bottles. Pick up a bottle or two, or perhaps some farm fresh eggs, butter, ice cream, or an array of cheeses and yogurt.

Pick up some fresh dairy products.
