Chelsea Market - 75 Ninth Ave
Opened in 1997, the Chelsea Market has been formed inside what used to be the old New York Nabisco factory. Food, flowers, kitchen supplies and dining occupy the ground-level space, while offices for companies such as Oxygen and the Food Network make up the upper floors.
As you enter into the market, the décor and design of the interior catches your attention first. Keeping with the original design of the factory, the atmosphere can be described as cave-like (in a good way). Restored hardwood floors, original ceiling fans, exposed ceilings, brick walls, and a small waterfall make for an eclectic old-fashioned vibe. The smells catch your attention next; they can range from freshly baked bread, to fresh seafood, to homemade soup. With more than 20 shops to visit, Chelsea Market is perfect for lunch, for picking up ingredients after work, or for choosing the perfect serving dish for tonight’s dinner party.
Along with picking up the necessities for the kitchen, Chelsea Market is the perfect place to bring visitors or to catch up with an old friend. Take in the sights and smells while enjoying good company. Organized tours are available, with tasty treats along with way.
