Chelsea Market was one of my favourite foodie finds in New York. Located in the stylish Meatpacking District, Chelsea Market occupies the former New York Biscuit Company factory (dating back to 1890), where Oreos and Saltines were made.
Today, the produce on offer is rather more up-market with local artisan sellers, gourmet food brands and established local restaurants and cafes.
We were lured in by the large Anthropologie store and then walked through the market before snacking on Tacombi chicken mole tacos, choc mint brownies from Fat Witch Bakery.
Other market delights can be found at Amy’s Bread, Sarabeth’s, Chelsea Wine Vault, Gramercy Flower Shop, Morimoto, Fat Witch Bakery, Eleni’s and The Lobster Place.
One of the highlights was the Williamsburg pop up store artists & fleas, showcasing emerging designers, vintage collectors and craftsmen.
I could have easily spent all my dollars at Chelsea Market, but managed to leave with just one necklace and a bag full of Fat Witch Brownies and a Blonde Brownie mix to bake at home.
Chelsea Market is quaint, buzzing and an absolute must for foodies visiting New York.
