Gansevoort Market


Collaborative food markets are having a moment in this past year. From Gotham West Market, to Hudson Eats, food hall or food court style spaces are housing some great talent all under one roof. The most recent to join this trend is Gansevoort Market in the Meatpacking District.


Once occupied by a club, this open space now has an array of food offering with a seating section underneath an incredible skylight and wrapped up in branches and bits of nature. Below are a list of all the vendors, in no particular order. 


Dojo Sushi is serving authentic Japanese cuisine and sushi.


Tacombi serves Mexican street food and tacos.


Champion Coffee serves coffee.


Heermance Farm Purveyors has organic produce from the Hudson Valley.

Cafe Grumpy


Always on multiple “best coffee shops” in NYC lists, Cafe Grumpy is almost 10 years in serving up a great cup of coffee. So, I paid a visit to their Chelsea location for some Joe. 


Cozy, yet spacious, with a railroad style store, there are plenty of tables and even a backyard garden to sit and enjoy your coffee or cafe snack. They have a seasonal coffee menu, focusing on quality and sustainable beans.


I ordered a Cappuccino, complete with a lovely floret. It was a little cup of delight, smooth, rich flavor, and again, I feel like the foam art just always makes everything taste better.
