Blocks of quaint and eclectic shops line the street near the river. Many food vendors and restaurants representing different nationalities, some offering free samples of their wares. Also, fresh foods, seafood, and meats for sale. A very lively place to visit.

I absolutely love this place! If you are looking for high end, keep looking. If you want some good food, quirky fun stores, check it out! We have a few places here that are absolute musts! Pittsburgh Popcorn co., Mancini's, just to name a few. It's definitely worth a visit!

The Strip is like no other shopping experience. About 3 or 4 city blocks of foreign food store, specialty shops, Steeler stuff and excellent restaurants. Rayna's Mexican, Pittsburgh Macroni Co. Wholley's Fish. Parma Sausage are just a few of my favorite shops, but there are no bad ones. Roland's restaurant, Bella nona, the Polish Store, etc are all great restaurants.... More

Lots of good food in the Strip (Gaucho's, Kaya, Peace, Love and Little Donuts, Pittsburgh Popcorn, and the list goes on and on!). There's way more Steelers' paraphernalia then should be legal but this is Pittsburgh. There are numerous markets such as Parma meats and Mancini's bread company that you just have to try. One thing we like to do... More

If you can't find it here they do not make it. You name it the strip has it, food shops, the Pittsburgh Macaroni Company, S& D Polish. So many shops so little time. This is not a place you can visit in one day and enjoy all it has to offers, restaurant's like Lydia's, Primanti Brothers for the world famous... More

For me, I always stop at Wholeys and get... More

Overcrowded and dirty. I love street markets and was hoping for a little more. We were sadly disappointed.

With all the street vendors and food places to check out, this is a great find that I wasn't expecting on my trip! Any and everything Steelers/Pirates/Penguins sports memorabilia can be found here and at very reasonable prices! Come hungry with all the scents from the food vendors you don't know where to start! Great place!

Imagine a town square with groceries, coffee houses, bars, open air markets, meat shops, fishmongers, restaurants and bars....now spread that square over 12 city blocks and you have The Strip. The Strip has its own ebb and flow. In the AM, the farmers markets, meat shops and fish mongers are busy serving Pittsburgh residents, the afternoon brings in tourists buying... More
