Chelsea Market is a staple in the Chelsea neighborhood, and one of the greatest indoor food halls in the world. This famous market was the birth place of an even more famous dessert—the Oreo cookie, which was born here at the Nabisco Factory in 1912. So slow down your weekend afternoon to learn more fascinating facts about the history of the market and the area. Mosey through the quaint Chelsea neighborhood for half-pound cookies and into Chelsea Market, where your eyes and taste buds will be delighted in a great food mecca. You'll learn interesting and significant details about the culinary past as you walk down the High Line. Sip hot chocolate or enjoy artisanal shave ice (depending on the season) while you're at it! Get your sugar fix in the trendy Meatpacking District, and wind down in the West Village, where you'll create your own mini cupcake.
Tastings include: half pound cookies (shared), hot chocolate with marshmallows or ice cream depending on the season, donut bites, candy (create a goodie bag to take home with you), chocolates, and cupcakes.
