Chelsea Market is the best when it comes to spending the perfect afternoon. So with this list of all its best shops, we celebrate all the greatness Chelsea Market is. And we also like to help you a little with getting you way around in there…
Top of the bill food @ Chelsea Market
As true carb-lovers, this one must be amongst our all-time favorites. Amy’s Bread literally has it all when it comes to baked goods (and our inner-Joey has a weak spot for their sandwiches as well), so be sure to plan a killer workout after visiting the place.
If you love your Italian foods (come on, who doesn’t?) this is your favorite Chelsea Market hangout, babe. We could talk for a decade about this place, but to sum it up they succeed to import everything delicious and Italian you could imagine. Worth a try if you ask us.
“Flavorful American classics simply made well”. This pretty much tells it all. Furthermore, a place that offers all day breakfast just can’t be bad. We fell for the Griddled PB&J, though (which is, very ironically, not an all day breakfast item).
If you feel like cooling down a little from this insanely hot shopping spree (and weather, ok), you definitely wanna give People’s Pops a go. These guys not only serve the best fresh fruit popsicles in town, they also have some go-back-to-the-90s shave-ice. On top of it, they only use exceptional seasonal and local goods.
The Green Table is a fully restaurant founded by The Cleaver Co. Keeping in mind they only use the freshest products from local grounds, you should really give the Chitarra Carbonara with prosciutto, kohlrabi and cured egg yolk a try.
Thumbs up for the clever marketing, since The Filling Station mainly offers delicious oils (and salts, and vinegar and oh, BEER) with a brilliant reusing concept. This basically means that if you bring you cleaned (Filling Station) jar or bottle, you can refill them with whatever flavor with a 10% discount. Awesomooo!
Oh seafood, how we love you! Do you too? If so, you can not miss this place with a simply overwhelming menu. Daily raw food, appetizers, snacks, oysters, cocktails, caviar and MORE. Really, you had us at snacks.
Meatlovers attention please! This neighborhood butcher shop gets you simly the best (yes yes, better than all the rest) meat from small-scale, sustainable farms not too far from the City. While making us a little uncomfortable as well, we do love the idea of the whole-beast-card: a gift card for every piece of meat an animal has to offer (portrayed below).
The perfect solution to tasting ALL THE DONUTS, but not getting fat (or too fat, in our case). Doughnuttery serves amazingly yummie donuts the size of a tennis ball. So you might not be surprised this secretly is our favorite shop in all of Chelsea Market.
Bored with All-American food? Let Friedman’s Lunch prove you wrong with their Grilled Cheese or Fried Chicken & Waffles. Bonus: Friedman’s is like the Gluten-Free-Guru, so if you have an intolerance, Friedman’s food will still be delicious!
Booze @ Chelsea Market
Time to get wasted (in a classy way, that is)! Get in there for some delicious selection of (mainly European) wines. Our pick would be the Italian Pinot Grigio. Don’t worry if you get a little hungry along your “winetrip”, their foodmenu is awesome too! For the real wine-junkie: they also offer some serious wine courses.
Other goods @ Chelsea Market
What’s a shopping spree without a little (ok, a LOT) of clothes, right? Thank God Anthropologie is under the roof of Chelsea Market, so you’re good.
Our favorite items as off right now:
Your home deserves to look gorgeous as well, so what better way than to treat it (and yourself) to one of the nice bouquets of Mrs. Blooms flower truck. So adorable! If you don’t need any flowers, go buy some anyway, just to support the mobile!
This is about it senoritas. Bye!
