This is just a very small sampling of what the Chelsea Market has to offer. While we shopped, I had a delicious plum-sour cherry frozen pop....it had bits of fruit in it and whole sour cherries! I brought home some dark chocolate balsamic vinegar ( it was so hard to choose which flavor to buy!), two jams from Sarabeth's bakery...blood orange marmalade and raspberry lime, some silicon cups to make poached eggs in from Bowery kitchen supplies and a bag of brownie ends from the Fat Witch Bakery! My sister-in-law couldn't resist having some fresh oysters from The Lobster Place....6 for around $6 and my son and nephew enjoyed some cookies from one of the bakeries. I really enjoyed visiting this market ... but next time I will go with an empty stomach! lol
We also visited an Asian Market ( H Mart) in Jersey. Seriously, if you ever get the chance to go to a good Asian Market, do so....soooo many interesting things to see and sample!
