A step backwards in time to an era of vendors of fruits, vegetables, herb and spices are displayed and sold in a neighborhood. People watching is at its best. A unique experience.

Just like the old days in South Philly! You can find all kinds of food specialties with vendors that present their offerings just like the old days. Fresh veggies, fish and produce as well as housewares in the old Italian tradition. Great fun!

Wandering in and out of the shops of the Italian market is only part of the experience - the curbs are lined with even more exotic shops. It is now more than just Italian - other ethnic foods are available.

The days of outdoor pedlars hawking food is long gone---NOT at the Italian market. Beware of what your buying from the pushcarts. Esposito's Meat has great veal chops, osso buck...Di Bruno's cheeses/olives etc are great. Fresh Mozzarella is make at their store next to the main store. The spice store has an exceptional selection & the owner is very knowledgable.

It's like being in the old country! The spice store has everything you could possibly want! The coffee shop-anthony's is wonderful!! The cheese shops whichever one u choose is unique in tasts and selections. It's a ritual to go here and make a day of it! We always come home with bags and bags of items!! Oh and don't forget Sarcones!! The rolls are fab!! No other roll will ever do after u eat these!!
