Philadelphia's Italian Market

Having lived in south jersey most of my life ( i now live in nc) I spent alot of time in Philly. One year I discovered the famous italian market of 9th street in south philly. talk about sensory overload. While there, we wandered into the coolest kitchen supply store called Fantes. I felt like I was in the DisneyWorld of kitchen stores. The gadgets, cookware flavorings, decorating supplies..... the list just goes on and on was soooo amazing. I feel compelled to share this info with those who may not be familiar with this wonderful store. The have a website that literally takes days to thoroughly peruse. It is fantes.com Check it out-- ya'll will be thrilled with it. Sandy

I know the Italian market well. Fantes is awesome (so is their website) and diBruno Brothers' Cheese shop! OMG, and the Spice Shop, and all the fresh veg and fruit sellers, and the butcher etc etc. I live an hour away...I go 4 times a year.

sweetface 2u - you should thoroughly enjoy shopping in Philly . It has been over 5 years since we lived up there. One great place to shop is the Reading Terminal Market in Center City. It's very busy and a whole lot of fun. Check for hours since they used to vary. There are also some neat restaurant supply stores in Old City with some interesting items. I don't know if they still have it but the Italian Market used to have a yearly festival in May when they closed down 9th street for a great party. Bands, food and fun. Enjoy your adventures ! Sandy

I've never had the opportunity to visit their store but have purchased many items from them via the Internet. They have a fantastic selection and I have to rein myself in each time I get ready to place an order.

Oh, darn! Now you've reminded me of them.

Great site with lots of things hard to find other places. A great treasure for those who live out in the sticks. And good prices.

I've always wanted to go to that market. I had never heard of it til I watched an episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and decided to look it up to see if it was real. Sure enough, that place looks a w e s o m e. Hopefully, I can make the trek out there one day.
