What may have once been Italian, the market is now International and has much more variety

The produce stalls along 9th street may be the visible part of the market, but there is a lot more to the street than potatoes and apples. The butcher shops offer the freshest... read more

This place is what heaven looks like in my mind. Fresh meats and produce, homemade pastas, cheeses, olive oils, fresh baked goods. You can find anything and everything here! It is a Philadelphia MUST SEE!

Italian Market is a real gem in Philly and needs more activities like the yearly festival to bring more people around. The neighborhood is changing for the better and the market is awesome place to visit during the day and weekend for out of towners.

Met some friends and had a great time; it was just the best thing to do on a wintry day. Lots of vendors and shops; I came home with more than needed but all that I wanted. Go into the shops; everyone is very friendly and if you get it right you will see Grandma tying off sausages with baker's... More

The produce stalls along 9th street may be the visible part of the market, but there is a lot more to the street than potatoes and apples. The butcher shops offer the freshest beef, pork and chicken bar none. The fish mongers, same. You can also find great sausage and chorizo freshly made. There's even a shop to get alligator,... More

For anyone who loves to eat, don't miss the indoor and outdoor Italian Market. It consists of blocks of authentic Italian butchers, bakers, cheese mongers, restaurants, wine merchants, et al. We went on a day where, in addition to the established stores, the street was lined with vendors selling fruits, vegetables, and the like. Truly amazing selection!! Tip: If you... More

I ventured into the Italian market area of Philly on my own during a family trip not really knowing what to expect. I have to say, I really enjoyed the experience, and would go back in a heartbeat! The street vendors have bountiful stocks, and prices are so low your jaw will drop. There are also great cheese, bread, and... More

The Italian market in Phila has been reviewed as falling short of its Italian heritage but I will tell you that it is still there 100%. The streets have definitely lessened that it covers but that is part of the economic time. The businesses are very authentically Italian as to food and goods... and the owners and staff at each...

They have tried to maintain an authentic look and feel. Good pizza and sandwich joints. I tried the 'Arista' sandwich at Paesano's. Well worth 8 USD. Did not find a good Italian coffee joint, though. Most joints do not accept credit cards.
