The market is just an awesome place for any tourist to visit while NYC. Tons of tasty food options with some artsy shopping mixed in. My wife and I did our own little food tasting and really enjoyed everything. I would suggest the nearby High Line to walk off the calories as well!

Visisted Chelsea Market with a friend last week. We picked up lunch at the Cull & Pistol, shopped in the Chelsea Wine Vault , enjoyed all the crafts and goods available by local artisans and enjoyed bakery items from The Fat Witch Bakery. We stopped at many more stores for samples and more delicious buys. It is a great place... More

We were here in April and loved the energy of the people browsing the shops and eating. We returned for a second visit to buy some gifts. I loved the Subway Line graphics on the T shirts and I got my husband a fun NYC as a Swiss Army knife T. Also some awesome jewelry!! Great walkway tunnel with sparkling... More

If you are looking for a variety of fresh and different food items call in and browse through the stalls at Chelsea Market. Situated in a historic building you will find a multitude of stalls filled with foods, spices and drinks to make your mouth water. We visited early in the day and the crowds were beginning to build.

Has alot of shops and restaurants. Very good to spend sometime venturing around. You would find some interesting stuff, depending on the shop, some of the corners are commercial and not of great quality but nice to see and fun to explore. The Chodolcate and Tea Shop is really nice.

Great market full of a variety of vendors. Check out Sarabeth's bakery for the ginger pecan tart. Fat Witch for decadent brownies. The seafood shop has a sandwich shop in the back with excellent lobster rolls. The High Line is just above the market. Grab a sandwich, head to the high line and sit on a bench and enjoy the...

There are so many unusual shops stashed into this one side of an old building down in Chelsea (near the High Line) that you need to take your time looking. It's not difficult as the tantalizing aromas of all the food places are enough to keep you busy. Sometimes a little tough with all the people squished in trying to... More

Don't make this a destination. If you are on the Highline or exploring the Meat Packing District and want to go, fine. And go before noon. Around lunch it gets unacceptably crowded. Read many of the "Poor" and "Fair" reviews for the bathroom situation. If you do go, visit The Doghnuttery. Those are some amazing doughnuts. Little and light, like... More

Absolutely enjoyed wandering around checking out the different shops and places to get a bite to eat/drink. It was definitely crowded, less so on a weeknight than during the day, but I think it's so worth it. There were a bunch of unique shops with all sorts of gifts and/or non-cheesy souvenirs. The flea market had great jewelry and unique... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
