Chellsea Market

On Thursday, my classmates and I went to the Chellsea Market. It was our second  time going and this time around I got to explore more of the Chellsea Market than the first time around. We first went to the Meat market. Inside the butcher gave us a detailed explaination about what was important and need to know about the meat market. The meat market only sells pork,lamb,beef and chicken. He also taught us various ways in which the meat was cut up and where the meat was coming from.

We then went inside the fish market. Inside of the fish market they didn’t really talk much. They was a good amount of different types of fish. They also had shrimp,lobsters,and sushi. I saw a fish that I’ve never seen before. I thought that was cool, the guy even allowed us to take picture of it.

We then went over to Bon Italia. Inside of Bon Italia we came across different types of ingredients. We were on a scavanger hunt looking for ingredients we didn’t know. So my partner and I were looking at ingredients we didn’t know can go on certain foods or drinks. For example, my partner didn’t know nutmeg can go inside of coffee. So we ended up choosing nutmeg as one of our ingredients.

We then went to the vegetable market. In there we found a various amount of produce and coffee. They all looked so fresh and good to purchase. I came across asparagus that was also a vegetable that I’ve never tasted or seen before. I pictured it to look like something else. It reminded me of scallion and a cactus plant put together.

Overall, the Chellsea market was a great experience. I did learn alot during this trip. I never knew about the chellsea market and I would recommend it to anybody that loves their food or ingredients fresh.

Chelsea Market

On Thursday, March 31st at 8:30 my class and I, went on a field trip to the Chelsea market. This was my second time going and there was still do much I didn’t see. I arrived a bit late to the trip but eventually met up with the rest of the class who were in the meat market. The meat market didn’t smell bad at all and everything seemed pretty clean. At the meat market they only sold three types of meat; beef, pork, and lam After the meat market we paired up into teams of two and went on a scavenger hunt to find things we haven’t seen before. It was pretty cool because there were things I never saw before. During the scavenger hunt me and my partner wandered off to the kitchen store. It was a really cute store and I was tempted to buy everything but settled only for a paring knife. After the Scavenger hunt we went and looked at the different types of spices they had. We also went to an Italian supermarket and I was amazed at how many different types of pasta there were, however everything was in Italian so I didn’t understand it. We then went to the fish market, it was big and there was a wide variety seafood. I was surprised to see that there were different types of caviar and that one of them was considerably cheap. After this the trip was over and me and a couple other classmates went to go buy something to eat. We settled on Doughnuttery were they sell bite sized donuts. We tried the Purple Pig, Cinnamon Sugar and Vanilla Glaze. They were all pretty good especially the purple pig which has a weird taste at first but then becomes good. The Chelsea market overall was a good experience and I’ll definitely be going back to try more food.
