This was a stop for a nice lunch while walking the High Line elevated park in the lower West Manhattan area of the meatpacking district. We had heard about the read our "New York City" guide before coming over to see this building, but was impressed more than we expected to be. The Chelsea Market building is immense and re-purposed...

Go there for lunch and to buy food. Have been going here for several years. Have great lobster rolls in the fish market. It's a good place to go if you live in the city as well as being a tourist. I had gelato at the Italian store there and the price was around $3.50 whole at other stores the... More

Chelsea Market is one of the coolest attractions that all NYC tourists must see! Located along the High Line, the Market offers a wide range of shops including fruit shops to seafood shops including the popular Lobster Place. The Marketplace's decor is an attraction itself and the whole environment is surprisingly clean. Given that it's a tourist-centric market, everything is... More

If possible visit before 11.30 am or after 3.00pm, as the Chelsea Market is quite small and there is very little seating if you purchase food to eat there. The Fish Market has fantastic hot soups (4 or 5 varieties) as well as fresh fish to take home, and lobsters that you can eat there, but once again very limited... More

I've lived and worked nearby for many years, and have gone through phases of eating lunch there at least once a week if I could (or grabbing hot soup from Hale & Hearty for take-out). I've not been there for years, no longer working just up the street, but I revisited on a nice summer day to see what's up... More

As a former Manhattanite living in Brooklyn, the pace of life in the market is a little intense for me, but, that said, it's a fascinating place, at least what I saw so far. I found a wonderful shop with ethnic and handmade things, artwork of various kinds, and a great hat for winter, and a fantastic kitchenware place, as... More

Absolutely amazing lobster at the seafood store. On a trip filled with a lot of grease this was a breathe of fresh air. The lobster was beautifully cooked with heaps of meat, paired with a nice seafood chowder it was a great dinner. Highly recommended when at the Chelsea market.

This is a mix of stores and restaurants - all indoor, a welcome break from the heat or the cold. There's a pop-up shop at one end and I love the mix of stores. It's a great place to get some treats to bring back home for the people asking for a gift from your trip. Even a quick walkthrough... More
