Seriously. This is one of the coolest places in Philadelphia. I had no idea such places existed in the US. There are a lot (maybe 120?) independent booths set up here focused mostly on food. They've got everything - produce, cheese, oil and vinegar, flowers,...More

Great place to wander around sampling all types of food. Cookies and ice cream were great. Roast pork was great. Produce store had some great prices (and some high prices). Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Would definitely go back.
