I was not impressed with this place! While there are many vendors, most offered the EXACT goods/products under a "different name". For example , there may be 5 different meat markets, selling the EXACT meat/pastries/etc., but their booths have a different name. There were different food vendors doing the same. The only people excited by this place are those where this type of market does not exist. This market appears t be more for the locals. Not many tourist are gonna by fresh seafood/raw meat to bring back home

Wow is it crazy in there . It was great because we went right out the door of our hotel and in the market. We had seen this on the travel channel and had to go and we did several times. There is pretty much of anything you want in terms of food and we ate there several times. Cheesesteaks, gyros , gumbo , sweets and so much more . Prices are about what you would expect some things seemed a bit more pricey than back home . Normally they are open 8-6 but start to shut down around 5 to clean up.

If you are in Philadelphia,this is one of the must visit places.It is a really old market with lot of different vendors.You can get different kinds of foods,meats and produce here.They have a couple of bakeries too.The chocolate chip cannoli from Termini brothers is the best in Philly. Iovine brothers has some of the best produce in Philly.The place is always bustling with people.

Went to the Market on a Saturday evening and discovered that the entire Market closes at 5 PM on Saturdays. I don't expect popular tourist spots to close at 5 on a Saturday.

Great place to visit, stroll around, and best of all enjoy foods, drinks and snacks of all kinds, tastes, shapes and sizes. If you are visiting on Saturday morning, you can get fresh local catch; on Sundays Amish businesses are not open. Great any time of day.
