Wordless Wednesday: Chelsea Market

When I was in New York City, I took a tour of Chelsea Market with some friends the day before the conference started. I am normally not a huge fan of organized tours, but I thought this one was great. The food was fine to good to great, but I am used to eating pretty high quality food when I dine out. Sarah did a great recap of the tour, so rather than rehash it (and certainly not as well), I’ll just suggest you go read hers. I’ll just share some photos. The tour also included stops in the Meatpacking District (amazing pasta!) and the High Line (amazing view!).

  8. Who would have thought a food tour could be so much fun? I was taken on the Chelsea Market Food Tour for my birthday back in October and it was a blast. Chelsea Market is a beautiful place and made more wonderful after having been on this Food Tour. We started off meeting our group and guide inside the market, just outside the cellar. Our guide, who’s name I forget, was witty and funny. I had the impression he was an actor, but he was a big part of the reason why the Food Tour was so great. He gave us all maps, brochures of good eats, and a bottle of water. We were off!We went to a variety of shops and stores throughout the market. We got to taste so many delicious foods, and not small little dinky portions either. So good. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Our guide told us about the history of the different restaurants, what the different owners were hoping to acheive with their stores/food, how the owner of Chelsea Markets managed to snag the Food Network as a tenant, and lots of other trivia. We spent the majority of the 3 hour tour inside Chelsea Market, but we did venture outside. Our guide took us to Del Posto, and Morimoto. He led us around the local district to see a butcher / restaurant, a bed and breakfast , and a hotel among others. I kinda feel some of these places were ‘off the tour’. Overall, great great fun. I came away feeling quite full, happy, and satisfied. I also learned what lactco-ovo means on this trip and that an olive spread can be sassy. =)reviewed on 1/14/08I.M.Y.

    Great city pictures! Love the close up of the cookies. Do you ever get self conscious taking pictures like these in public?

    Amy Reply:

    I didn’t because this was a tour and lots of people were taking pictures and I don’t when in super tourist locations. When i am wandering down the street, sometimes I get self-conscious, mostly because I don’t want people thinking I am taking pictures of them.

  21. I didn’t know they gave guided tours of Chelsea Market. Huh. So random! Love that top shot- looks like it’s from another era.

    It was through Food Tours of NY, they do quite a few tours of different areas. I think they have some sort of deal with the vendors we visit. They guide was super informative.
