  • I would recommend avoiding peak lunch hours because the wait can be long at certain restaurant vendors. The Chelsea Market is a fun place to explore, definitely take a walk through first and check out...  more »
  • Too entertaining and novel. It mainly has places to eat and shops of local designers. Great for a cold or rainy day I really loved

  • Whether you are visiting NYC or just grabbing a bit to eat in the neighborhood the Chelsea Market can't be beat for great food and a busy (touristy) vibe. From Ice Cream to crepes to Lobster rolls there's something for everyone at affordable prices. Enjoy!
  • I really love Chelsea Market. Inside the market building was great, I was so impressed beautiful decoration using and preserving old Oreo factory can changed into and used as premium market place. I bought hamburgers there for my Brunch. I was so happy to have best hamburgers in the world. During my stay in the U.S., I tried another premium burgers such as Steak and Burger, In & Out, Shake & Shake, but Chelsea burger was best. I think that I can't forget it during my life.
  • Great food. The lobster place is great boot pricey...so try the tacos across the way. Cheap and exceptionally tasty... You cannot go wrong
  • I loved it more when it first opened because it wasn't wall to wall tourist. Lots of artisan crafted foods, sweets and beverage shops. Great place to stop for a bite and definitely bring a bag so you can bring home lots of goodies.
  • Awesome tourist spot. That being said it does get really crowded here especially on the weekends. Plan to wade through a good crowd. Aside from that, there are a decent selection of restaurants, places to shop for snacks, an awesome seafood place and even a barber shop. Highly recommended when visiting the city. Stop here if you're near the high line.
