Been to a lot of markets and always find something. This market is just a pile of trash and not worth wasting your time.

Very limited selection of goods - mainly costume jewelry, clothing, used leather goods and books. Very few vintage items. Beware of fakes and dealers not knowing their merchandise, If it is too good to be true.... NY Antique Showplace Antiques is across the street but many vendors are not their on Saturdays.

A real flea market filled with dealers selling antiques, vintage and second hand. I always find something to buy! Quality and prices vary from dealers to dealer. Don't visit if you looking for tomatoes or tee shirts but if taste runs to a sterling vase, vintage Fortuny fabric, jewelry findings from the 40's or a great pair of wall sconces,... More

if you're in to costume jewelry and being ignored and talked--down to by rude vendors trying desperately to eke out a living, this place is for you. much smaller than i thought it would be. big disappointment. don't waste your time. no bargains.

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
