“This is aa jewel for both residents and tourists”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

This is the Philly of Seattle's famous Pike Place market. Like Pike Place, all of the food is local, in both its sourcing and its style. Everything about it is R-E-A-L real. It is not made for tourists, which is why tourists love it. One word of advice, though - get your cheesesteak somewhere else, like Pat's or Jim's. That's the one thing not best acquired here.

“Where are the Italians?”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

The market is now very small. Most of the vendors are flea-market type. Only a couple of the stores are what would be considered a market.

“It is a market”
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.

“What's not to love?”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

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 -”
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.
