We started early and ate our way through the market until we had to waddle back to the car. There was a nice parking lot with reasonable rates. The shops were beautiful and there was a wonderful selection. The produce stands had everything you could possibly want and at very reasonable prices.

The Italian market....immortalized in the first Rocky film...is a remaining vestige of "Old Philadelphia"...For over 100 years vendors have plied their meats and vegetables along 9th Street...originally from pushcarts, and now from standing carts....Well worth a visit!

This Italian Market had everything. I especially like the cheese store it is huge also the spice store had every spice you can think of. There are lots of restaurants mostly Italian. We had lunch at Ralph's the oldest Italian Restaurant on the United States. It has been in Phila over 100 years so like a step back in history

This is a quaint market. But looks a little rundown and it's more Mexican than Italian, and even Chinese. We had sandwiches at Geno's and Pat's. Not impressed. I must say that it was on a Saturday evening. Not that lively.

Lots of sights and smells. Interesting to see so many Mexican places at the Italian Market. Crabs running wild and lots of seafood smells. Fun to people watch. Lots of fresh produce at great prices.

This is the best place for buying produce in Philadelphia that is cheap. Johnny stand is the best. You can buy anything you want on ninth street at reasonable, cheap prices. Italian market is what Philly all about.
