“It is a market”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

It is an open market with some shops inside and some vendors you can shop outside. Some of the meats are excellent and some are okay. The produce is typically fresh and reasonable.

Great food, wonderful service, an atmosphere like no other. A must visit when in Philly to get the true "flavor" of the area.

“Urban Adventure Tour -”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

My family and I took a 2.5 hr tour of the Italian Market in Philadelphia. I have shopped there but never knew any of the history behind the area. CHUCK was our tour guide and did a great job of educating the five us about the area from 9th and South St to Pat's and Gino's!!!!

Fun on a winter afternoon followed by a great lunch and cocktails.

“The Italian Market-a Taste of S. Philly Culture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

For decades, the Italian Market has been a mainstay of S. Philly culture. Many of the Italian merchants have been here for decades, and one can get fruits and vegetables from the carts on the street, excellent homemade pasta from many sources, meat, poultry and fish. In addition, one can get excellent cheeses and more kinds of olives than you can imagine. In recent years, there is also a greater Hispanic and Asian presence. Fonti's is a great place for all kinds of cookware, and there are numerous restaurants in the vicinity.. If you don't mind the crowds and want an authentic S. Philly experience and some good food, stroll down from Washington St. And visit the Italian Market

“Fun Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Had an overnight stay at the Marriott Hotel which is very close by and decided to check this out. There were so many vendors and all sorts of samples to try. Prices are not high and quality of everything we purchased was very good. We would go back again.
