Unique Passover Pop-up at Chelsea Market.

New York has many unique attractions – an elevated park, multiple Chinatowns, the Statue of Liberty – and now it has one of the more unusual, and ephemeral – a Passover Pop-up.

The Manischewitz Experience, in Chelsea Market March 12, 13 and 15th, features food tasting, chef demonstrations, photo booths and giveaways – and it’s all free.

Although Manischewitz is best known for its Kosher food, it also has gluten-free products and, new this year, non-GMO matzo.

You can taste matzo pizza, vegetarian soup and freshly made s’mores, or dip macaroons (not to be confused with macarons) in the chocolate fountain.

The Manischewitz Experience is open March 12th and 15,  11 am – 7 pm and March 13th 10 am – 6 pm
