Interesting vendors, historical building, sort of fun atmosphere. It is not airconditioned, and crowded. Snacks that we purchased there were not fresh, ended up tossing them.

It is a nice place to eat in Philadelphia. There is so much choice that it is difficult to choose. :-) We spent 3 days in Philadelphia and ate every lunch there.

No, they do not but it is easily accessible on public transportation (which I recommend) or there are lots nearby & on street parking (be careful of the PPA- they love to give tickets)

Many of the food vendors have counter service, but not all. There a a few areas with open seating for visitors to bring their take out meals to and enjoy eating while taking in all the sites of the market.
