Au programme

On this experience, we'll hit the country’s oldest and largest everyday open-air market for some authentic, Philly foodie action: the 9th Street Italian Market. We'll take you into some of our favorite shops, meet some store owners and hear their personal stories of food, history, and community, perhaps sample some food, and tell you the not-so-common stories of one of the most colorful neighborhoods in Philadelphia. You'll get to see fresh produce stands (with incredible prices!), established cheese shops, cafes with fresh coffee, chocolate, and gelato, spice shops, and more. We both also like to stay open to visiting any shop that catches *your* eye, there's so many!

In addition to the market and its history, we'll also explore some historic and charming hidden side streets and eclectic and colorful mosaics and murals that only locals know about! The original "suburbs" of Philadelphia, these townhomes are now in the thick of it! And, of course, a visit to South Philly wouldn't be complete without some Rocky trivia and nostalgia (if you're so inclined).

Le lieu

We've developed relationships with many merchants in the close-knit Italian Market over many years. We each have our favorites and we each like to show visitors *our* own local side of Philly, so we tend to keep the exact shops we'll visit flexible, to give you a more unique experience! However, if we can, we each try to visit a local cafe that makes their own Italian-style gelato and one of the most delicious cheese shops in the country!

Our tour guide, Chuck, was a great storyteller. He wove in the history of the city as we explored the Italian Market. Tour was informative and FUN.

Chuck was amazing! He had a perfect pace, great story telling, and took extra time to make sure we got the full experience. We enjoyed so many stops and tastes along the streets of the Italian market and appreciated the outdoor art and quant alleys near South Street. Chuck made the city views just that much more special it was like having a friend in Philadelphia. He is the special sauce! A+++

Alex was our guide and he was excellent- very knowledgeable and went at a good pace. We went down some side streets to see murals and mosaics which was nice. Everyone in our group loved it. It still included time to shop too.

This was my 2nd tour with Howard over my long Philly weekend and he was just as fabulous as the first tour I took with him. Not only was he super knowledgeable about the Italian Market and it’s history, but he kept shoving food in our mouths. It was like, “Here, have some cheese, an a tortilla, and some candy things, and…” It was great. Highly recommend this off the beaten path tour.

Do yourself a favor and book this special cultural experience while you can. Chuck was the best - he lives in the neighborhood, knows the locals and has great tales to tell. From mob history to Philadelphia mythology this experience felt like a true insider look at the City while delving deep into the Italian market and history of the neighborhood. I appreciated Chuck's knowledge of the ebb and flow of the market and families over time within past and current political and economic context. I'm a true lover of markets and this didn't disappoint. We saw the beautiful mosaics, tasted cheese, chocolate, bread and olive oil from local makers. I went on this tour right as the city opens up post-pandemic so everyone (and me) still getting their bearings with what's allowed. Chuck was very helpful in navigating spaces and protocols - and he was a chill, fun, smart guide!

Chuck did a really great job explaining the history of the area and had a lot of interesting tidbits to tell. It was especially good because he grew up in that neighborhood. You could tell he cares about the neighborhood.
