Concept: An indoor paradise for food lovers, featuring purveyors of gourmet and specialty food items, as well as clothing, books, and kitchen supplies. There are also plenty of dining options for eat-in and take-out.
Goods for kids: Posman Books is an independent bookseller with a great selection of books for babies to teens, plus toys, art and cooking supplies, and gifts. Chelsea Market Baskets has gift items such as toys, stuffed animals, books, and baby clothes. Bowery Kitchen Supply has cookware and baking supplies, and a few lunch bags and accessories.
Food & drink: At last count, there are over 35 food vendors and restaurants in the market. Some are for take-out only, others have their own seating areas. Throughout the main hall there are additional tables and benches for eating, and the market is also adjacent to The High Line for al fresco dining. High chairs are scarce: Ronnybrook Milk Bar (currently closed for renovations), possibly the most straightforward dining option, does not have them, but you will find them at the opulent Chinese restaurant, Buddakan. For treats and party sweets, favorites include Amy’s Bread for classic cookies and cakes, Doughnuttery for freshly-fried donuts, Eleni’s New York for elaborately-iced cookies (bonus: it is a nut-free bakery), and Fat Witch Bakery for brownies.
Changing tables: Yes, there are two in the ladies’ restroom, which is in the middle of the market opposite Corkbuzz Wine Studio.
