We went to Chelsea Market over the holiday season. It was ridiculously busy. There was not enough seating for all of the patrons. Fortunately we got a table at Friedman's Lunch without too much of a wait. It was very, very good! The menu was simple (sandwiches, salads, soup, etc.) but flavourful. My husband had a pastrami sandwich that he referred to as life changing. I had a cup of tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich. It was excellent.

We spent the rest of the day wandering around the market and looking in the stores. If we weren't so full from our lunch there were definitely more more food options we would have liked to try out.

We really enjoyed The Filling Station. We got a few vinegars, oils and salts to take home.

I thought it was a farmer's market type of place. It's an indoor market. With stores instead of stalls. Some seating. Must say it all looked very delicious. The seafood market was extraordinary.

There was plenty of food options, the smells were amazing but that's all it was. A place to get something to eat. The bathroom lines we ridiculously long as you would expect during the holiday season, there was not enough seating to accommodate all the visitors. I was expecting more history about the Nabisco company but found little.
I am sure if you went in a non peak time your expectations would be met.

Not many locals here as this seems to have been spawned by Food Network who has its studios above the market.

The food is pretty good and there are some pretty cool stores but for my taste too crowded and too many tourists ...

Great place with a lot of nice gourmet stores which often also act as restaurants. We had a marvelous brunch at Friedman's lunch, really delicious omelettes and mimosas!
