The Shops at Chelsea Market
Chelsea Market is located in a large building on Manhattan’s far West Side in the Chelsea neighborhood. The offices on the upper floors house companies such as Food Network, Google, MLB.com, NY1, and EMI Music Publishing. This blog post is not about those companies. It’s all about the first floor’s foodie paradise that is home to bakeries, restaurants, markets, and other food shops.
Bowery Kitchen Supply
I live in New York City and I’m not wealthy which means that I have a small apartment with a small kitchen. However, due to my love of baking and eating I dream of having a huge kitchen with all kinds of baking pans, platters, and fancy kitchen appliances. Walking into Bowery Kitchen Supply gave me the same feeling that I get when I walk into Home Depot, William Sonoma, or Crate & Barrel. I’m willing to bet that if you needed any kind of kitchen doodad you’d be able to find it at Bowery Kitchen Supply.
Lucy’s Whey is a cute little shop located in Chelsea Market that sells a variety of cheeses along with accompaniments and accessories. It’s a one stop shop for putting together a cheese platter.
The Filling Station
The Filling Station is pretty interesting store. They have shelves of jars and what I would refer to as “fancy moonshine jugs” that are filled with different kinds of olive oil, vinegar, salt, and craft beer. The shop is a bit dark and it feels as though you’ve stepped into a speakeasy which is actually very cool.
Jacques Torres Chocolates
I’ve always been amazed by Jacques Torres’ ability to craft creative figures and fancy little chocolates. The little piggies here are adorable and there were also chocolate handbags and pumps on display. I’ve also heard really great things about his hot chocolate but it was far too warm for that on the day that I visited.
L’Arte Del Gelato
While walking around taking photos I kept seeing people with small red cups filled with creamy goodness from L’Arte Del Gelato. By about the fifth person, I kind of wanted some but I was still pretty full from lunch. The second time I visited I was again full from having just eaten lunch. I’ll have to make a dedicated stop to taste the gelato.
I don’t really get excited about meat but from what I saw, Dickson’s Farmstand looks like a pretty good butcher shop. Expensive. But Good.Tags: cheese, desserts, food shops, market, meat
