I have to disagree with a lot of the other reviewers here on TA...we thought the Italian market had very little selection and a lot of mediocre stores. The one standout however was Di Bruno's which had a fantastic selection of everything and was a...More

We were looking to kill some time before heading to the airport and realized that the Italian Market was only a few blocks from our AirBnB. So we’re not “Rocky” fans so didn’t know this area was featured. It’s a great ethnic Italian and Latino...More

The Italian Market in Philly is to not be missed. Still has that original vibe from early century when the Italian immigrated to the US. If you're a "Rocky" Fan, South 9th is where he runs while training. I love the fact that they kept...More

Going to the market is a must when in Philly. Being able to get fresh fruit and a cannoli. The food is so great and desserts.

Pat's and Geno's start out on one side of the Italian market. Meats, Meats, and or Meats. You can find the mural of the old Mayor. Definitely worth half an after noon but I wouldn't spend more than that in the area.

Most of the shops were closed because of the 4th of July holiday, but you can still walk by and feel the nostalgia of a bygone era. It is a bit run down but there are many Italian shops; butchers, outside grocery stalls, and bistros.

You can get pretty much anything you're looking for at this great outdoor market! They have really good produce for a great price. Lots of great shops along the same street as well in case you want fresh pasta, cheeses, olive oil, or anything else!

People may still call it The Italian Market but I call it The ninth street market. Most shops are no longer owned or operated by Italians. It may look the same but the spirit and feel of the market is gone. Good thing they're not...More

Stepping onto 9th street was like stepping into Philadelphia circa 1920. The smells and selection of produce, meats and misc was overwhelming. Come with a healthy appetite and cash, a lot of places don’t take plastic. The produce was cheaper than our grocery store and...More

There aren't any hotels in the immediate vicinity of the market. Perhaps an air BnB nearby? The nearest hotels would be in Center City and parking would be at a premium. It's only a short can ride or 20 minute walk from... More

Yes, that's the one! The market is still there! Rocky (the statue) is not far away (like 15-minute ride) - near the Philadelphia Art Museum.
