Chelsea Market, a must-see place in New York


A visit to New York means discovering unique and atypical places. Chelsea Market is one of them.

I recommend that you stop by this place!

What is Chelsea Market?

Chelsea Market is literally an Urban Food Court with around 40 small businesses. You can buy food to go, visit the stores, and it’s one of the best spots in the city to eat. You’ll find almost everything for lunch, Maine’s lobsters, Italian ravioli, cupcakes, pastrami, and more.

It’s also an office building for several companies like Google, TV Channels (Oxygen Network, Food Network),, EMI Music Publishing, and New York City Local.


What’s the history of Chelsea Market?

Since 1890, the building has been the headquarters of NABISCO (NAtional BIScuit COmpany).  The restoration works ended in 2005.


The factory produced the famous Oreos and Mallomar biscuits.


In the ’90s, the ground floor of the building has been modified while maintaining its industrial structure.

What’s the best of Chelsea Market?

In my opinion, the best thing to do is to go to Chelsea Market at lunchtime.

After a walk thru Greenwich Village in the morning, you can visit the Meatpacking District, go for a walk on the High Line and take a break in Chelsea Market.

In the wintertime, the market is warm and cool in the summertime.


Chelsea Market is also interesting thanks to its structure and style. There are a lot of pictures on the wall, statues, fountains… A pleasant walk is waiting for you in the market.


When is Chelsea Market open?

Chelsea Market opens every day from 7.00 am to 10.00 pm, on Sundays from 8.00am to 9.00 pm.

The market is located in between Chelsea and the Meatpacking District, between 15th and 16th Streets, from 9th and 11th Streets.

My fist trip to New York was in 2007 when I was working for an airline company.
