The Chelsea Market is a true paradise for gourmets, a must-see on a New York vacation.
One of the most appreciated gastronomic places by New Yorkers and tourists, all open 365 days.
The market rises where once, products produced by the famous Oreo and Ritz biscuits. In fact, before moving to the 1960s, the building was home to the National Biscuits Company (Nabisco). After an excellent redevelopment, starting from the end of the 1980s, the market took on its current appearance.
Today, it populates the best fish specialties of the country. Here, you can enjoy an excellent freshly prepared sushi, or boiled lobster, really delicious, to be consumed strictly with bare hands; if you do not want to have lunch or dinner, the Chelsea Market is a special experience for the eyes, including bakeries, pastries, high quality wines, bars and many exclusive products. Moreover, in the corridor that runs throughout the establishment, there are musicians and small events that delight guests during shopping.
The proposals are not limited, however, only to gastronomy. You can find items, jewelry, toys, books, clothing. Anthropologie is among the most interesting and visited shops.
