Chelsea Market

Chelsea Market Review

This former Nabisco plant—where the first Oreos were baked in 1912—now houses more than two dozen gourmet food, wine, and flower shops, as well as an Anthropologie store, and one of NYC's last independent book stores (Posman Books). Reknowned specialty purveyors including L'Arte del Gelato, Fat Witch Bakery, Amy's Bread, Jacques Torres Chocolate, and Ninth Street Espresso flank the interior walkway that stretches from 9th to 10th avenues. Be sure to wander into the 15th St. Arcade where you'll find a bunch of great new kiosks offering everything from fresh mini-doughnuts to authentic Mexican street food. The market's funky industrial design—a tangle of glass and metal for an awning, a factory pipe converted into an indoor waterfall—complements the eclectic assortment of shops. There is some seating inside but if the weather's nice, take your goodies to the High Line.
