    Always a great place to explore.
    We revisited Grand Central Terminal. . We were there in 2005 also. We love walking thru the place. We took a tour and loved CeeCee who helped with our tickets and (I think) Greg, our guide. Tour was full of history I did not know. We also wandered thru the market . Food has always been more expensive there but fruit with cherries at $14.00/lb was unreal. The berries were just as expensive. We were wandering around Chinatown and found berries for $1.99 a pound. And they were really good. We are from the PNW where they are grown and can't get them for that price! Aside from that we had a great time exploring. Highly recommend the tours.

    The Ultimate Market!
    The Grand Central Market is a foodie's dream come true! They truly carry everything that Whole Foods would sell and then some. The prices are not cheap but you get what you pay for. My favorite spots were the butcher and the baked goods. Unfortunately, we were on our way to a steak dinner and could not try anything.

    Loved Spices and Tease in GCM
    Inside this market lies many small businesses. I enjoyed visiting "Spices and Tease" as they carry hard to find spices. I bought a special lamb tagine blend which was a great Moroccan spice mix. Add to a lamb or chicken tagine and you've elevated your meal. I was also happy to know they had "Hazlenut Sugar." Sprinkle on sugar cookies, fresh fruit or fold into a plain yogurt that adds a great flavor. Knowledgeable and friendly staff.

Fantastic place - so many vendors to choose from. All of excellent quality. It can be pricey but one is at Grand Central - to be expected. Yummy cookies at Bien Cuit.

There is a nice variety of loose tea leaves and spices,

Maybe take a pass on their fruit.

I bought cut up mangoes and watermelons, fresh blueberries, raspberries from Eli Zabars Farm to Market.

All of the fruit was good except for the raspberries. Half of the packet was molded, green and black mold on the batch. Gross.

It's as Grand as it's name. This is foodie heaven. I'd shop here everyday if I could. Great range of produce, fresh and beautifully displayed. For seafood this is the widest range of any market I've seen, and incredibly fresh. I bought more than I could eat, and it didn't matter. Wonderful cheese, cold meat selection, and the smoke salmon delicious. You just have to visit this place!!

European-style food shopping here. Located between the Graybar Building and Subway Lines 4-6 on Lexington Ave, it is a great market to support local small businesses. Also helpful when you need a take out for your subway or train ride home.

Small, nice atmosphere, good selection of 'boutique/niche' shops. They are all food, at least that I saw. I wouldn't make the trip to Grand Central just to see this, but if you're going anyway its a nice place to browse.

This market is small, very small. In fact, it is basically a half-block hallway lined with stalls. However, it offers gourmet items you normally cannot find in most markets, like many kinds of caviar, including ossetra and beluga, as well as prepared escargots which you can simply bring home, throw in the oven, and have a restaurant quality dish. You can also buy one of the best croissants in town. I only get croissants from here or at Ladurée. Other good stuffs include aged beef, langoustine and more.
