Claudio's, Superior, Cannuli's and DiBruno's are some of the reasons visit. In addition we love Villa Da Roma for lunch or dinner,

The market is an institution in Philadelphia dating back to the early 1900's. Good prices for produce and fruits. Several speciality brick and mortar stores along the street with high quality meats, fish, cheese, hand made pasta, Italian specialities. Some good Italian restaurants. Most of the stalls along the streets are no longer in italian hands, are owned by Mexicans... More

At Washington Ave north , find a parking spot and walk the 2 plus blocks. Both sides of the street, have the street vendors actually selling their fruits and vegs in the street, with each vendor having... More

The place seemed much more lively, clean and with many people looking for quality fruits and veggies on the photos. We were quite dissapointed to find that there were almost no people looking to buy anything from the stalls. The produce didn't seem very fresh either, the only positive was that there were some cheap findings here and there. The... More

If you are a foodie like me you know that it's hard to find certain ingredients for ethnic dishes. There are specialty shops here that sell everything you'd ever need- meats, cheeses, spices, etc. Or if you aren't a good cook you can buy already made raviolis and sauces at Talluto's and go home and heat them up. There are... More

This is a much easier place to shop and walk than the Reading Terminal Market. It is less busy and more spread out. You can also get a little taste of "Philly attitude" here! The shop keepers are great to talk with but can be a bit unfiltered with their remarks so buyer beware! A number of great restaurants are... More

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.
