The Chelsea Market in New York is yet another reason to visit the fabulous Manhattan!
It is an amazing food hall – the best one in town and one of the greatest enclosed food halls in the world, in my opinion – located in the Chelsea neighborhood and built where the former Nabisco factory complex was back in 1912. From 1997 onwards, the Chelsea Market has developed to be a gourmet mecca inside a unique, industrial environment surrounded by wooden, aluminium and brick detailing.
The gourmet market should definitely be listed as one of the top things to do in New York!

Apart from gourmet dishes, Chelsea Market is known for its vintage treasures – from clothing to shoes, accessories, handmade jewelry, paintings, posters and an incredible amount of other items – perfect for gift-giving. Explore the retail department of the Market for it may not be especially big but features a significant amount of good-quality pieces.
The food hall part of the Market is the one I loved; for the delicious soups, freshly-baked bagels, fresh sushi, the authentic Chinese dishes and the Lobster Hall where I tasted the best lobster in town – free from any table etiquette, simply enjoying the fresh, delicious lobster.
Apart from being an it-food hall and shopping mall, the Chelsea Market complex houses numerous television companies along with Youtube offices. The complex fills an entire block, west of Broadway and right next to the High Line, the railroad track turned into a green oasis – an amazing urban park. Combine them both and end an exciting day with a glass of wine at the Chelsea Market.
The market is open 7 days a week and the concept is "Come Early – Stay Late". Well, you definitely won't wish to leave early.
