As each year goes by it’s becoming less and less Italian, but the essence and flavor of the market is carried-on and always worth a visit.
Philadelphia’s South 9th Street Italian Market is the nation’s oldest outdoor market (http://italianmarketphilly.org/). The merchants invite you to join them in a one-of-a-kind celebration on May 19th and 20th, the Italian Market Festival. It’s an extravaganza for the senses — streets lined with vendors offering every Italian delicacy possible, live entertainment, fun contests and more! Come on down for a cant’-miss-day of family fun.
-Stages with Live Entertainment
-Half Ball Tournament to benefit the Mummers Fancy Brigades
-Procession of the Saints
This year, the party does not end at 5pm:
Join us for the first Italian Market Festival After Party at South Philly Bar and Grill located at 9th St. and Passyunk Ave.
