A Tour of Chelsea Market in Manhattan

Chelsea Market, located in the Chelsea section of Manhattan at 75 9th Avenue, is housed inside the building that was once the National Biscuit Company complex.  Since 1997, the ground floor of this industrial building, where the Oreo was created, is now home to an enclosed food court and shopping area for culinary delights.  The original factory floors and exposed brick walls lend great atmosphere as one wanders from shop to shop.  Chelsea Market is a wonderful place to pop in for a quick snack and refreshment, or to sit down and enjoy a more substantial meal.  It’s also not unusual to see a familiar face or two, as the Food Network headquarters is upstairs and is also where Iron chef is filmed.  Enjoy this little tour of a New York City food connoisseur’s mecca.
