I love this place to pick up all sorts of authentic ethnic foods. These are not your flashy new upscale shops, but have been around for a long time. There are specialty candy, biscotti, coffee, cheese, meats, Italian, Mediterranean, Polish, Asian, art, & souvenir shops. I'm sure I've probably missed something on the list. We love Stamooli's olives and picked... More

Never can I go home and not go to THE STRIP. Always must easy there and buy STEELER STUFF. Got great deals as usual. So worth a special trip to just shop and eat good food!

The Strip was originally part of the produce, etc. terminal distribution area where truckers could get a good meal when the rest of Pittsburgh was sleeping. It has evolved into street vendors and markets...clothing, souvenirs, Italian foods, fresh fish, cheeses, coffee shops, ethnic restaurants and the famous Original Primanti's as well as the famous DiLuca's breakfast. A must-do in Pittsburgh... More

This area felt like the "real" Pittsburgh, with ethnic eateries, Italian coffee shops, Mexican bodegas, venders on the street, beautiful old buildings and bookended by an amazing Catholic church and 1 of the hundreds of bridges Pittsburg is know for.

This was the hub of the produce coming into Pittsburgh, but now has not only produce, but fish market, boutique shops and restaurants. Very busy on Saturday mornings.

Fun shops - especially if you are a Pirate / Steeler / Penguin Fan! If you enjoy cooking with authentic Italian ingredients - go to Pittsburgh Macaroni Company. The meats are very good and there is a wide variety!

Parking is somewhat difficult unless you park in a lot, $10-15. Strip is about 1 mile long and stores on both sides. Plenty of Italian speciality stores such as the macaroni co and enrico s. If you are a steelers fan, there are plenty of souvenir stores with steelers souvenirs. Nice walk when the weather is nice. Stores are on... More

This is Pittsburgh's Pike Place-type Market district, with everything fromoutstanding ethnic grocery shops to high-end ingredients for home chefs. It's where I go when I'm making a meal to impress, because if you can't find it here, you just aren't going to find it anywhere. There are sweets in the form of a great little donut shop or freshly made... More
