Chelsea Market Tours

111 reviews
Set inside the former cookie factory where Oreos were first baked, the Chelsea Market has a long culinary heritage. Since being redeveloped in the 1990s, it has become a leading food and shopping complex, housing everything from wine bars and fishmongers to kitchen supply stores, as well as offices and television studios.

The Basics
Chelsea Market is an ideal spot for a browse and a wander, with an eclectic range of food purveyors, sit-down restaurants, and shops to explore. While exploring, admire the market’s tasteful redevelopment, which incorporated aspects of the building’s industrial heritage, such as exposed piping and metalwork, into the design. 

Visitors can explore Chelsea Market on walking tours of Lower Manhattan, which typically focus on neighborhoods such as Chelsea, the Meatpacking District, Greenwich Village, the West Village, and SoHo. The market also features as a stop-off on tours of New York’s High Line, an elevated park set on a old railway track; NYC food tours; and sightseeing coach tours, which cover attractions in Uptown, Midtown, and Lower Manhattan. 


Things to Know Before You Go
  • Chelsea Market is a must for foodies hoping to sample some of NYC’s finest food vendors. 
  • Restrooms can be found in the market.
  • Most vendors in the market accept credit cards. 
  • Chelsea Market is wheelchair accessible, with accessible entrances at both Ninth Avenue and 10th Avenue. 

How to Get There
Chelsea Market is situated on Ninth Avenue, between 15th and 16th streets, in New York’s Meatpacking District. The subway stop 14th Street/8th Avenue, which is served by the A, E, and L trains, is just a 5-minute walk from the market’s Ninth Avenue entrance. 

When to Get There 
Arrive hungry as food is the market’s main attraction. The market is busiest during lunchtime (around 12pm–3pm), so come in early morning or evening to avoid the longest lines. 

What to Eat, Drink, and Buy at Chelsea Market
Eating at Chelsea Market is a real treat, with a seemingly endless array of snack, dining, and food shopping options. Longstanding market favorites include Ninth Street Espresso, a coffee aficionado’s paradise, and the Lobster Place, a fish market known for its Maine lobster rolls and raw bar stocked with fresh-from-the-ocean delights. The Filling Station sells all-natural oils, vinegars, and salts, which customers are encouraged to take home using reusable bottles and jars.
