We went to the market for lunch as a change from the hustle and bustle of midtown. It was a little like an indoor London Borough Market with shops instead of stalls - if that makes sense! Would definitely recommend a couple of hours to wander around and snack.

A must see in NY. I have been to the West Side Market in Cleveland, Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia, the Strip District in Pittsburgh to mention a few and I would say that Chelsea Market ranks right up with the top four.

Great seafood stores there, recommend the lobster roll for sure. The gelati store was also full of delicious offerings

Its all food, nothing else. While I'm sure the food there is good, I had just gotten there after eating so wasn't interested in any of them. It was very crowded and had a very very long line to the restrooms.

I would not go out of my way for the Chelsea Market but if you're doing the high line I recommend spending a little bit of time here. There are several restaurants so you can take food up to the high line. There are other little shops. The best part was the artist section. If you want something locally made,... More

Loved Chelsea market, it is a food lovers heaven with food available from all around the world but the highlight is the superb seafood on offer. There is a great wee bar in the market and we found no difficulty spending a few hours in the market eating and drinking. Well worth a visit.

Wanted to go somewhere different for lunch, had a great time at Chelsea Market. This is all indoors with several food shops. We had crepes, pot pies, and picked up cheese and brownies for later. Fun place to walk around and try different foods. They even had small picnic baskets that you could buy while there so you could pack... More

There are too many things to eat here. It would take a week of visits to sample the highlights! We had 4 kinds of raw oysters at the oyster bar and there were 6 other kinds we couldn't get to. There are the basics- raw oysters to the innovative- crazy flavors of gelatos and cupcakes. Take a couple friends and... More

If you expect this to be a real market in the European tradition you will be utterly disappointed. All it is, is a glorified restaurant row inside a nicely restored building. If you stay in an apartment with a kitchen, then there is not much to buy to take home and prepare your own meal (what is the essence of... More

Chelsea market is a nice place to have lunch. Big variety of top of the notch food (no fast food in there - real food only (thank God!!!!). If you have a place to cook where you stay, you can find anything for a nice dinner "at home".
