Everyone I know who's lived in or spent much time in Philly told me I had to go here! It's just an open-air market, but it's also historic in its own right, and it is pretty cool. I like ethnic areas in old cities like Philly, and this fits the bill.

This open-air Food Market is a fun place to walk around in. It is busy and bustling, colorful and vibrant. Many of the Store signs are hand painted, and there are even some huge Murals on some walls. We were informed that this is THE place for many locals to come and shop for affordable home-made pasta, cheeses and quality... More

Cool shops, great atmosphere. I Just love carousing around the market. Shops are mostly food oriented, so it would be a great place for a day trip ( take a cooler).

Essential for the food centric. I ALWAYS stop in for cheese from di bruno bros. Also available are hand cut pastas, fresh/cheap/seasonal fruits and veggies, at least 2 great butcher shops, bakeries and a fantastic sandwich shop. It's fun to browse and even more fun for me since I can cook up my purchases at my family's house.

Its somewhat historical but most of all its FUN! it's not too big so its easy to shop the vendors carts stuffed with fruit and vegetables! A few key restaurants worth a peek! I think the true drawl are the butcher shops. Most have a specialty from rare game... More

9th Street (locals never call it Italian Market) is da bomb. Must stop at WIllie's for a roast pork sandwich with peppers-this food is to die for! Di Bruno's Cheese has the greatest selection of both cheeses and kitchen equipment ever. Any one of the vendors here will have amazing fruits and veggies. Used to live down the street and... More

Great prices and great fresh meats and fish. Everywhere you look, vendors are eager for your purchase and rightly so. They are always there and will welcome you every time. Although, it is the Italian Market, there are Asian vendors as well with their specialties. You cannot go wrong not just visiting but buying delicious, fresh meats. It does get... More

Where can you still go in US and sample epicurean delights, street action and humanity in a major city simply by walking around. Bakeries, delis, fruit stands, restaurants, flea junk shops it is all there to see, buy or avoid. Worth the visit! the Doctor
