Sunday Supper at the Chelsea Market 

Set in a historic factory, Manhattan’s Chelsea Market is now home to some of the city's finest epicurean shops and restaurants. For our sixth annual Friends of James Beard Benefit, we've culled a formidable group of chefs to prepare a convivial family-style feast, which will be served in the market’s main hall.  


This year's Sunday Supper at Chelsea Market will raise funds to benefit the James Beard Foundation, Wellness in the Schools, and other charitable initiatives of the Jamestown Charitable Foundation.
