Never a disappointment from the best strip in the world! It was a little rainy, but you'd never know by the crowd! Always nice-upbeat people!!

Saturdays may be crowded but there is usually a little more going on in the Strip than on a regular weekday. Any time we have company, we take them to the Strip. So much fun shopping and activity. Parma Sausage is one of my favorite stops, just make sure you are a carnivore! Delicious prosciutto, Sopresatta, Italian Sausage, Meatloaf mix... More

I make yearly trips down to Pittsburgh and the Strip District is always a must-stop. It's pretty much just a single road lined with shop and restaurants but it's pretty cool. Stores carry almost everything- ethnic clothes, kitchen supplies, chocolate, fresh fish, Steeler's gear, etc. There's also a plethora of restaurants down the strip catering to all kinds of tastes....

A must stop for anyone visiting Pittsburgh. More than just a farmers market. Cultural fanfare. Bakeries, fresh pasta, fish market, Asian food and market, meat market, fresh cheeses, musicians, wine shop, antiques, art. Something for everyone. We loved it!

We had a really hard time deciding where to eat. So many choices. The cheese shop was amazing and the biscotti were delicious. The area with the fresh produce was great and the prices were decent. If I lived in Pittsburgh I would be here a lot. Loved Penzey's.

The Strip is a great and inexpensive place to find Pittsburgh souvenirs (mainly t shirts) and sample some of the city's famous foods. There are also art vendors selling jewelery, clothing and other ecclectic items. It can get very crowded on a Saturday morning. Fun for locals and tourists alike.

I grew up in Pittsburgh fifty years ago. My father worked in The Strip area. I was too young to realize what an attraction it was. (There was even more of everything back then.) When we returned recently after many years away (and many pre-fab "tourist attractions" elsewhere), the value of what's real and authentic was a revelation. Somebody else... More

It's fun to see the combination of street vendors, stores and restaurants! Stop in the Pennsylvania Macaroni Co for a step back I. Time. And the fish market is great too! So many fresh markets....if I lived closer I would be eating lunch here and buying everything for a fresh dinner! And don't forget to bring some fresh flowers home!

Worth taking a walk through. This area was recommended by some friends from Pittsburgh. In addition to all the produce you could buy, I must have walked by 5 sports outlets. It gave me a real feel for the city of Pittsburgh. After my walk I knew that people in Pittsburgh love their teams and have a rich heritage. There... More

We spent a couple of hours strolling along the Strip. Found interesting shops to browse in, interesting sights to see and lots of choices for places to eat. Eclectic and fun!
