9th Street Italian Market Festival in South Philly

9th Street Italian Market Festival in South Philly

‘Authentic Italian Culture in South Philadelphia’

Food, Food and more Food! The Italian Market is the nation’s oldest continuously operating outdoor market. The city’s biggest block party will take place on May 20 and 21, which runs along South 9th Street, from Fitzwater to Federal Streets. The festival will go live from 11 am to 6 pm on both days.

Just like St. Patrick’s Day, when everyone is Irish for a day, this festival is when everyone becomes Italian for the 2-day weekend event in South Philly. But the Italian Market is not just Italian anymore. It has become a melting pot of international cultures and cuisines.
