Vad du kommer att göra

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).

Var ni kommer att vara

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!

My husband and I took the Urban Adventures Italian Market Immersion and it was Awesome. Chuck is a retired professor, local to the neighborhood, so he had so much to share about the location, as well as the history of Philadelphia. We learned so much in such a short time. First we walked around the neighborhood where he showed us spectacular murals by Isaiah Zagar, made from handmade tiles, and broken pieces or glass, mirrors and random objects. We had seen the murals as we walked the streets before, but were able to appreciate the art and details after Chuck's explanation much much better. The Italian Market experience was great too. He took us to all the good places, had samples of cheese, pastries, nuts, balsamic vinegar, and others. All the vendors were very friendly and accommodating. What I enjoyed from the trip was that we never felt rushed. It was a very relaxed and friendly stroll with a wonderful host. Would highly recommend it!

Chuck our guide was great. Very interesting, he was a neighborhood resident, and took us through neat alleys that we would never have known about

Chuck was great and really personable. His stories were interesting, informative and often included a reflection of society - whether in 16th century or the 21st century. Highly recommended.

Howard is an incredible guide! He will shower you with a wealth of knowledge, including backstories, and an abundance of warmth. I enjoyed the selection of samples from specialty stores. Italian Market was an exceptional tour. I can’t wait to take more tours with him when I visit the area again!

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+++
