Shop (and eat) till you drop
The Chelsea Market is the stomping ground for the true Manhattan foodie. The curious structure has evolved from a National Biscuit Company complex in the 1890s to the center of American culinary fashion. Shoppers select wine, cheese, fruit, sandwiches, and kitchen supplies below the great offices and studios of the Food Network. Catch a glimpse of your favorite celebrity chef, or just pop in to see if there's a sample sale. If you have a sweet tooth, Amy's Bread or the Fat Witch will have something special for you.
