Just okay
Mar 2020 • Couples
After visiting the train station, on the way out we went through the market, which consists of several shops selling baked goods, drinks, fresh fruits, nuts and so on.
We checked out a few stalls but prices were definitely higher than in other places, and we did not feel like buying anything.
This market is perfect for people who need to commute or who will have a long ride ahead and want to grab something to eat , otherwise I wouldn't bother having anything here as there are several other options around this area.

Foodies heaven
Mar 2020 • Couples
This market was recommended last time I was in NYC, so took Andy this time. We are both foodies and this is heaven for us. It is very expensive but the food is such good quality it’s worth it. I wish we had one in Kings Cross here, I’d miss so many trains as I’d be stocking up! If you like food definitely worth popping in.

Look, don’t touch
Mar 2020 • Couples
I walk through Grand Central Terminal every day for work but I never noticed this place until I pretended to be a tourist and spent the weekend in NYC. Don’t come here expecting to do your grocery shopping. Like all the other reviews, this place is ridiculously expensive. They do have a great assortment of meats, cheeses, spices and produce. It was lovely walking through and looking at all that was offered but I would probably never buy anything from here. It took about 10 minutes to walk from front to back at a slow pace so don’t expect it to be huge. If I was ever in a crunch for dinner or date night and needed to pick something up before I got my train, I would consider purchasing something. There is a nice wine/beer shop around the corner so if you did decide to pick up dinner, you can grab a nice bottle of wine also.

Feast for your Eyes!
Feb 2020
The market is part of Grand Central Terminal. We were impressed with the selection of fresh produce, an array of spices, breads, cheeses, meats, fresh seafood, desserts, prepared foods, flowers, etc. It is a feast for your eyes, and the smells are enticing. You can get whatever you want here. Even though the prices are high, you have to remember you are paying for top notch quality. We were especially taken with the tree hanging upside down at the Lexington Street entrance to the market. It was a twinkling delight.

Great selection of fresh food.
Dec 2019
We visited the market to get some lunch and were really impressed by the selection available and at very reasonable prices. Would definitely recommend as a place to pick up an affordable lunch and some healthy food in NYC.

Murray’s Cheese Grand Central Market
Jan 2020 • Couples
This vendor was one of the top highlights of our trip to NYC. High quality and great variety of meats and cheeses. Service by Matthew was unparalleled. His knowledge and enthusiasm for all of the products was infectious and he made the whole experience fun. It was expensive but worth every penny!

Sushi, cheese and bakery or take home
Jan 2020 • Family
Great selection of anything you need right in grand central station - commuters can bring home dinner to cook or get some sushi or cheeses or bakery items for that long train ride (ours held us over on the new haven ride)

Great Selection of Very Fresh, Expensive Luxury Foodstuffs!
Dec 2019
Sure, the items here are overpriced, but it's great to find such an assortment of gourmet items in one location. I always like to pick up a few luxuries to take back to the hotel for breakfast or a snack. I wish there were a single point for checkout, but c'est la vie. Just a quick walk though, however, is an interesting experience.

Smorgasboard of choices from the food vendors
Dec 2019
Often I dash into the Market to pick up carryout lunch or early dinner from Dishes. A good friend enjoys shopping for and finding superb cheeses and dried meats at Murray's Cheese. Multiple choice from quality food vendors within the market as well as the chance to pick up flowers, teas, chocolates, and more.
