This is one of the most remarkable markets left anywhere in America. Market is the key word. There are fabulous places to eat, Ralphs Italian Restaurant, Scarcones Deli, Pats' and Genos' Cheesesteaks among many others but this is really and truly a market where some of the finest locally produce foods are sold. There are fish mongers, beef merchants, pork... More

As a traveler I love to go to ethnic markets but I was a little disappointed in this one. It is definitely a local shopping area and not really a spot where tourists hang out. However, if I lived in Philly and wanted to cook Italian I would come here to shop.

This should be called the Mexican/Italian market. For me, this area has some of the best Mexican food in Philadelphia. You can even buy fresh tortillas there. The produce is really inexpensive and the prices drop as the day progresses. Try showing up near closing around 3pm and you'll get lots of bargains. Just keep in mind to use the... More

Drove thru very slowly as market was incredibly busy. The ride gives you a clear vantage point to view the many produce and fruit vendors as well as the numerous meat and fish stores selling their wares. The place does need a rehab and most certainly a street cleaning!!!but all outdoor markets are like that. It's an experience--what can I... More

Like something out of a movie, walk down the street with grocers peddling everything from vegetables, to meat to amazing cheeses. If you can't find it here you don't need it. Even if you don't buy anything it's worth the walk. Do it and you will see what I mean.

This is the market he runs through in the movie. It's busy so you may have trouble finding a street to park on but you can't deny the food you find will be GOOD and authentic!

I feel in love. I love cuisine. This place is FABULOUS in in every letter. True Italian market. The staff is extremely helpful and can provide suggestion for various dishes. They know their products. Wished they were here. Every time I see this photo--my mouth waters! I miss you 9th Street Market!

Great Italian market for fresh meats, fish, cheese and vegetables. The variety of Pastas both fresh and dry, sausages, various cuts of meats, many eateries of Italian food makes this extra special. We enjoy shopping here on weekends. The atmosphere is great and it is A must visit historical place in Philly.
