We walked down to the Meat Packing District from Central Park on a very hot day and were glad to find Chelsea Market. What an interesting market with a whole variety of food shops, restaurants, book shops, etc, etc. Great buzz and some really unusual shops as well as plenty of places to grab a drink and a meal. Well... More

Located in the old meat packing district of NYC, the Chelsea Market is located in a cool old building and I highly recommend checking this out at the same time you are exploring the High Line since they are in very close proximity to each other.

We visited Chelsea Market this past weekend after we walked the high line. I found it to be a lovely experience with plenty of unique shops and friendly people. The fresh pasta shop was so interesting and we only wished there was a way we could have taken home the pasta.There were so many unique and interesting places I only... More

A great place to check out! We strolled around, enjoying bagels and coffee on a Sunday morning. It's close to the High Line, which we explored after the market. A perfect Sunday!

Lots of local foods being sold and cooked. Many great choices. Nice NYC subway history inside a historic building.

Loved the classy boutique little shops here. Was blown away that you could buy freshly cooked lobster to eat at one of the places in the market. Loved looking at everything here. Go if you are a foodie. Once you have looked at the market you can then walk the highline.

This is what is so great about New York. You can find the best markets and cafes. Rub elbows with the locals and try something new. This Market has it all classic American fare to organic produce from local farms and exotic spices. Take your time and hang out for a while to really get the feel of the place.

Chelsea Market undoubtedly is, in my opinion, one of the weirdest art markets within the US borders. As all artistic stores, ones in Chelsea Market generously offer you quite a variety of odd goods. You may find something worthy both for yourself and your house. Nevertheless, you well may encounter awkwardly high prices, which is no surprise - modern art... More

Make sure you go to this place hungry--as it is a wonderful market with all the best of NYC food and shops under the same roof. There are a few stores that I would visit every time: The Lobster Place-chowder, fish and chips, sushi, fresh oysters; Friedman's Lunch--everything made from scratch with fresh ingredients (even its own catchup), enjoyed their...
