Shopping >Chelsea Market
“Some fun displays and waterfalls and such keep the space interesting too.”
“The wine shop looks promising but other shops are not enticing enough”
“and the food court is great-- top notch thai, you can get lobster rolls at the seafood store, milkshakes at the dairy place, and fresh carrot juice at the fruit place.”
“feel spoiled that i live within walking distance of this great place!”
“The aroma from all the baked good shops alone is worth the schlep all the way to 9th Ave. Amy's Bread makes the best ciabatta.”
This remarkable respite from rain is the perfect spot for a meal, shopping or just gawking. Though tourists abound, they are muted somehow by the utility and industrial loveliness of this market full of spices, cheeses, coffee, gelato, wine, pasta, seafood, sample sales and kitchen supplies.

Great finds, fabulous food, indy atmosphere. Love CM! Great place to tackle your grocery needs, buy a gift and even get lunch. The Market offers a great selection of local merchants and a wide rang of specialty foods in one stop. The setting is cool and indy and gives you the feel of street shops, but inside. Sarabeth's and the NutBox are two of my favorites that without fail, I hit every time!
Shockingly Shallow. Honestly, I ordered a sympathy basket to ship to California from a DA's Office when one of our co-workers lost her father. The Basket was $129 and I put it on my card and collected money for it. I received a call from an employee named Steven who told me they don't ship fruit to CA. So, I asked if they could switch the basket to one without fruit which was $10 more and just take $10 of product out. They told me they would charge me $50 because if they had to take stuff out it would be a "custom basket." I reminded them this was for a funeral. They did not care. I told them I spent over $500 sending baskets after Hurricane Katrina to displaced friends. The guy says, "fine, we will take the fudge out of the basket." Cause it would hurt you to float a couple of pieces of fudge to a grieving widow and her two children. If I ever get that money hungry, soulless and shallow...
Very cool selection of varying items (food, wares, knick-knacks, NYC stuff).
Frequently you'll catch a sale or 10.
For example, 2 for 1 on a certain potato chip brand as well as 5 for a dollar shortbread cookies.
Cheese selection is actually better than you would think -- for having about 15 cheeses, would you think English cheddar could be found?
Very reasonable selection of CMB branded bags (for example, $12 for an insulated lunch bag).
Attentive and happy staff! This is of course close to the 10th Ave side of Chelsea Market.
Drifting through the food-laden halls of this once-abandoned factory is a sensory delight..
Opened in 1997, this long brick building is much more than a glorified food court. Food, flowers, kitchen supplies and dining occupy the ground-level space, while offices for companies such as Oxygen make up the upper floors. Neighborhood office workers mingle with those in search of gourmet ingredients.
There are more than 20 shops to visit, including Sarabeths, Hale and Hearty Soups and more fresh produce outlets. Chelsea Market is perfect for lunch, for gathering ingredients after work or for rounding up 12 white ramekins for a creme brulee dessert to be served at this weekend's dinner party. It's the perfect place to think about yourself, of course, but also to think about gifts--many of the businesses carry beautiful wrapped options, perfect for a host present.
Great finds, unique, non-commercial atmosphere. Chelsea markets is home to an authentic italian deli for hard to find flours, pastas, meats, olives, oils, etc. It made me nostalgic to my childhood and rivals arthur avenue for selection, although pricier for sure. there are several great places to eat within the market as well as many well known bakeries including eleni's and sarabeth's. a great way to spend an afternoon if combined with a walk through the west village.
Nothing to see.
Not what I think of concerning a marketplace.
Not enough stores to make the trip again. The wine shop looks promising but other shops are not enticing enough
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors. Stocks a variety of specialty and imported food and gift items, all available arranged in handsome baskets.
Heaven in a Warehouse. If heaven were all about food, then Chelsea Market would be my version of heaven. The aroma from all the baked good shops alone is worth the schlep all the way to 9th Ave. Amy's Bread makes the best ciabatta. And all the desserts from Eleni's Cookies, Ruth's Cheesecakes and Rugelach, and the Fat Witch Bakery are worth every calorie. Notable mention to the Italian grocery store that has an amazing selection of cheeses and everything else imaginable.
a mall--in manhattan!. chelsea market is truly unexpected. a mall right in the middle of manhattan. what is great is that instead of the stores being "sunglass hut" and "the gap," it is almost all little food shops. like a giant "food court" (that's what we used to call the food area in my mall where i grew up in ohio) with a bit of shopping. and the food court is great-- top notch thai, you can get lobster rolls at the seafood store, milkshakes at the dairy place, and fresh carrot juice at the fruit place. there does seem to be an overload of cookies and baked goods places, which is the only odd thing. i feel spoiled that i live within walking distance of this great place!
