Wow, what a fantastic experience. I have been to this market hundreds of times and thought what could someone tell me about it? I can't say enough about Chuck (our guide) and the great insight he gave all of us into the history and fun facts re: this iconic section of Philadelphia. Food tasting was a part of it and the pride of the store owners really did shine bright as they introduced their specialty items and told stories of the generations that have been a part of thir family business.The highlite was the tour through the meet locker (nothing is staged). As a native, Chuck offered personal insight of the South Philly culture and attitude. This is a definite do for a visitor ot Philly native.
