Fodor's Review

This former Nabisco plant—where the first Oreos were baked in 1912—now houses more than three dozen vendors carrying everything from gourmet food and wine, to oils, vinegars, teas, spices, gift baskets, and kitchen supplies; there's also an Anthropologie store, wine bar, barbershop, shoeshine stand, and one of New York City's last independent bookstores (Posman Books). Renowned specialty purveyors including L'Arte del Gelato, Fat Witch Bakery, Amy's Bread, and Ninth Street Espresso flank the interior walkway that stretches between 9th and 10th Avenues. Be sure to wander into the 15th Street Arcade, where a bunch of great kiosks sell everything from fresh mini-doughnuts to Australian meat pies, Brooklyn-made caramels, and 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.
