Out of town Chowhound headed for Manhattan. I've been to the Essex Market and Chelsea Market on previous trips. May prowl them them again for goodies. I hope to hit Fulton St. Fishmarket this trip, for lunch.
Are the Jefferson Market and Lexington Market still open? Any others I haven't named?
Also, if you have any favorite goodies to go from any of the markets, I'd appreciate the heads-up. On my last day in NY, I'ill be stocking a cooler for the 32 hour ride home (starting at Zabar's, of course).
