    This open-air market has been here forever. It is still strongly ethnic, not just Italian. There are Koreans, Indians and Pakistanis. My favorite is Villa de Roma, a no-frills, down-home place. Read more

    This is my favorite place in Philadelphia! Great produce at reasonable prices. Try going on a food tour of the Italian Market, it's a great way to try the original places but also Asian and Mexican.

    Also try Tortilleria San Roman at 951 S. 9th! FRESH, homemade tortillas daily. The blue corn tortillas and chips are to die for but get there early on the weekends because they sell out quick.

    Great place for true foodies to get supplies. Real butchers, cheeses, spices & fish providers with veggies too. Like a walk back in time. Smells can be a bit strong though (good & bad)

    Peruse the famed Italian Market and sample a variety of cheeses and fresh fruit - just don't try to return an already eaten piece of fruit like Mac does for Charlie in an episode of Always Sunny.

    Opened in the 1880s by Antonio Palumbo, the Italian Market is America's Oldest Outdoor Market. While the Italian fare remains great, it's also home to some of the best Mexican and Asian food in town.

    Try Nina's, the new BYO near the spice shop. Food is delish, owners nice and it really is the best Italian food on the market. More sophisticates than the other, more traditional spots.

    From the fish to the vegetables, you will find plenty of fresh food, just few steps away from the city center.

    Many places in the market are cash only. Make sure to have some on hand. If buying produce, check out a few stands before selecting. The next one always seems to have better deals and product

    Best produce stand for the novice: Scott & Judy's at the north end of the market. Best for the pro who knows what to look for: Paul & Frances Giordano at Washington Avenue.

    Nina's is awesome! We like to get many small plates and bring a couple of bottles. Definitely try the ricotta gnocchi and the grilled radicchio.

    the vegetables are such good deals instead of buying them at chain stores. Ethnic markets are always cheaper, so come and save a few bucks

    It's a fading tradition but the stalls are there and it's a nice place to stroll through on a sunny Sunday.

    Any day but Monday, check out the Italian Market. 10 blocks of the most amazing food in a huge open-air bazaar style market.

    Open weeklong, historic, and so much more affordable than other similar locations throughout the city, like Reading Terminal

    Ohhhh my oh my oh my. There are Italian people, and then there are people who pose as Italians when talking about food. Go here. That is all.

    Its no longer "Italian" its been bought out by Hispanics. Call it what it is. The Hispanic Market. Built from the hard work of Italians and given to Hispanics via government grants &7 years no taxes.

    Support your town! Produce here is ready to eat not old! Fruit and bread should not last you 3 weeks, that's not food it's a science experiment.
