Good Food and Good History of the Chelsea Market

The Chelsea Market and Meatpacking District Food Tour was well worth the time and effort. The market itself is a very interesting place with a lot of history and becomes the main character on the tour. Even if you have visited the market before you will gain a new appreciation for it once having been on this tour. You also get a small taste of the High Line park, which cuts right over the market. This is perfect for any public space or architecture lover in your group. Over all the Foods of New York tours are outstanding every time, and this one is no exception.

Our tour guide was Kurt. He remembered our names within minutes and provided a wonderful history of the area. He was very knowledgeable, funny and made everything interesting. The food was fabulous and we couldn't eat another bite!! We would definitely do another tour of a different area when we come back to the city!

I went with 8 other women from my family of different ages. We loved everything we ate. Some of my family ate before the food tour which they regretted after because they were not able to fully enjoy everything because they were fool. The tour guide (Diana) was funny, very outgoing and knew a lot about the area. Not only did I love the food but loved the history lesson that went along with it. Would definitely recommend it. Also, because of the food tour, we were able to visit the Chelsea/Meatpacking District area.

Our tour guide, Darrell Blackburn was exceptional! He engaged everyone in the group and was entertaining as well as informative. Everything we tasted during the tour was delicious and the merchants were friendly and helpful when we returned to the shops after the tour. I would highly recommend this tour to others.

Fun, Delicious and Informative

This is a great tour, mostly inside the market with a brief stroll on the High Line and a sit down food sampling in the Meat Packing District to finish. Darrel Blackburn was a terrific guide, very entertaining and informative. He knew and addressed everyone of the 15 of us in the group by name. The light jovial tone was relaxing and the insights of history, food facts, rumors and gossip made for serious fun for all. His timing on one liners was matched by his unrushed adherence to the schedule which fit everything perfectly into the three hour timeframe. And, oh yeah the food samplings were great and plentiful!
