Exploring the Chelsea Market
June 4, 2018
With the hustle and bustle of a confined space in New York City, the Chelsea Market is filled to the brim. The scent of freshly baked bread, slow-roasted pork tacos and spicy ramen noodles offer a pleasant surprise to the many visitors filing in. The market provides an enjoyable space for families and friends to come indulge in the diverse food cultures of the city.
Located in the Chelsea borough of Manhattan, Chelsea Market is a food hall, market and shopping mall all in one. It attracts over 6 million visitors from across the globe each year, and it is considered to be one of the biggest go-to places in The Big Apple.
The market is home to dozens of restaurants, from BeyondSushi to Lobster Place to Los Tacos, each serving unique and tasty dishes. All of the restaurants aligned in one big hall truly make visitors feel as if they are taking a food tour around the world.
While the focus of Chelsea Market may be its delicious foods, it also includes many clothing stores and a small market on the lower floor, Chelsea Local, which sells healthy, locally sourced foods to the busy people of New York City.
The market is open 7 days a week, from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Monday through Saturday and 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday. Be it Chinese food, Thai food, German food or even Japanese-inspired-Mexican food, Chelsea Market has it all.
