South Philadelphia's Italian Market is the nation's oldest outdoor market and on May 18 and 19, the already-bustling heart of South Philly welcomes the city for its annual 9th Street Italian Market Festival. Enjoy a weekend filled with the flavors and sights of Italian-American culture, from tastes of Italian cuisine to the Annual Procession of Saints.

Expect to see stands offering a display of fresh sausage and peppers, antipasto salads, roast pork sandwiches, cheeses, cured meats, an infinite array of pastries, and so much more. Many nearby restaurants will extend their table service to the sidewalk so you can dine alfresco and enjoy the festival atmosphere.
