Happened upon the Chelsea Market on the way to the High Line. As it was nearer dinner time we decided to go in for a bite to eat - a few cocktails later, we never saw the High Line! Great places to eat and drink. We ate/drank at Rana.

Terrific. The eclectic Chelsea Market offers something for everyone… and the food is simply divine. We had the Spicy Shrimp and Black Bean chowder at the C&P Galley where you stand at a high table to eat… very reasonably priced for an excellent, fresh, warming fish soup: $5.75 for a medium cup and $7.50 for a large. There was a... More

After reading all the reviews, my husband and I walked through the freezing snow and visited Chelsea markets.. and we were not disappointed. You must come hungry because the main attraction is the food - there are plenty of shops and restaurants to eat at. I had fresh lobsters at the fish market and some donuts and the doughnuttery -...

We really enjoyed wandering around Chelsea market! Amazing places to eat and browse through the shops. We managed to get some sugar cookies from an incredible shop there and some vintage goods as presents! Definitely worth it but extremely busy at a weekend

Interesting mix of shops and restaurants. Come hungry, as there is a lot of food to sample! We were there during the cold weather season so it was easy to wander and eat our way through the Market. Food was reasonable, but the drinks were pricey.

We arrived saturday morning. Loved the industrial feel. Loved all the shops! Definitely will return, however, so crowded by lunchtime we had to leave to get something to eat! There wasn't even a place to stand! They need more tables.

This market is nice to walk through and has a lovely array of shops to visit but when you go to a market you're expecting a few bargains. There are none here. I did however find it easy to locate a bunch of gourmet items I was after and stopping at the fish market for lobster is a must.

We visited on a Saturday and it was very crowded, but if you're not in a rush you can take your time and explore the wonderful variety of shops and food . A few of the shops are " cash only " so be prepared for that and you won't be disappointed. Would definitely recommend the Gelato and the Crepes... More

If you have an hour or so the Chelsea Market is well worth you time. I've visited NYC many times and this was my visit but will be going back. There's a little bit of everything in the market from a wine store to many places to grab a bite (Mexican, Italian, seafood, coffee, Thai, ....). If there's going to... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
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.
