New Yorkers love their markets, whether the convenience store on the corner, the local supermarket or one of the more gourmet spots such as E.A.T. on the Upper East Side or Zabar’s on the Upper West Side. A number of notable food halls have added greatly to the available options.
In a far-west stretch of Chelsea that was on no one’s list of desirable destinations when it was conceived, the Chelsea Market is now part of a larger complex in a refurbished building that houses a food court, shops, offices and television studios. Culinary stores predominate, with choices including Amy’s Bread for an impressive array of fine loaves; Bowery Kitchen Supplies, with its appealing selection of cookware; Chelsea Market Baskets, with top-rated food products from around the world; Li-Lac Chocolates, a local New York favorite; Lucy’s Whey for artisanal cheeses and sandwiches; and many more.
