We wandered through this market at lunch time. There is an amazing array of choice. If you are hungry then you will enjoy the chkices in this market.

We came not for the produce but to take photos, and we left happy. The fruits and veggies were suitably photogenic, and they were really cheap if you actually wanted to buy something. A fair number of interesting stores (cheese, kitchen, more) also along the way. You can also find a selection of restaurants that look interesting and diverse. definitely... More

We don't get there nearly as often now that we live out of state, but still enjoy going. There are a few shops we always visit: spice corner, dangelos meats, Claudio's, and talluto's. Today we added a new place - a fish market located at 9th and Washington. There are a number of stores we don't/wouldn't go in. There are... More

It's sad to see what is left of a once vibrant and proud neighborhood. True, there are still some great stores such as Di Bruno Brothers. But the artisan and family ambiance of the neighborhood is dying. The market now is more of a tourist destination of what once was rather than what it is now.

Sad to see this once vibrant market fading away. There are still a couple core businesses but the rest is junk. I think the biggest problem is the attitude of the customers.

Very few shops were open during winter, so my advice would be: If you visit in winter, don't bother.

Yes, the Italian Market can be a bit off-putting. It isn't the best swept, and it sometimes smells, but the food is the best. Depending upon the time of day that you go, it's either a dessert with little or nothing on view to an oasis of goods and delicacies with hoards of people to the aftermath of an army... More

If you don't mind trash and rat infested street side markets. Enjoy yourself?!? 9th Street is a disgrace to what was once a great city in America. There were a few remnants of the Italian merchants fighting for existence. The pastries I purchased at Isgros' were lacking in taste and not fresh. I felt like I was walking the streets... More

I don't believe how many times I've been to Philly and never knew about the Italian Market here. The bargains were amazing!! Great variety of vendors too. A stop to this area is a permanent must-do on my trips to Philly now
