Went during the weekend. So much food to chose from. Be prepared to stand in line. Not a lot of places to sit. Go with a group and share.

An awesome place to get a taste of Philly as a tourist. Many merchant eateries serving Philadelphia with grocery, dining & shopping needs! It's just amazing to walk around make sure you come hungry.

Best of what makes Philly, Philly.
All types, shapes & sizes sitting side by side eating at the Amish run lunch counter, waiting in line for delicious donuts or ordering up provisions for the weekend.
We went Friday for late lunch & it was still happily crowded.

I am so glad a previous Philly visitor told me about this market. It is so fabulous, it boggles my mind. I went there twice with a friend and it was always busy. But totally worth the wait. I couldn't believe the variety of fresh produce and meat and all the ethnic restaurants. Staggers my imagination for sure. The first day, my friend & I ate food from the country of Georgia and then brought back Korean pancakes. The next day, my friend had a Philly cheesesteak and I had Greek. I also bought a bialy and my friend bought gingerbread and I bought candy. I don't think you could ever be bored going here. We were fortunate to be within walking distance from our hotel. I wish this were in my backyard.

What a find! The Market has amazing dining options from all over the world. I only ate there once, but would have liked to go several times to sample more of the many different types of food.

My wife is a foodie and wanted to stop in. We had a great time trying different food, drinks, and desserts with our kids. It was packed and seating was limited. It reminded me of what Lexington Market in Baltimore was like in the 80s, which was pretty cool back then. If you want to try different foods and are happy walking around and waiting in line, then I would suggest it. Next time we go to Philadelphia, we will definitely return (but stay in a hotel closer). I would not put this down as a "must do" but if you have a few hours, I would encourage you to check it out.

I was there on a Sunday late morning when some food vendors were not opened so this review may not be complete.

I had really high expectations but it was OK. Most of the food vendors were not for folks not worry about healthy eating. Lots of selection for baked goods, burgers, cheese steaks (obviously), bagels, Asian foods etc. I had a scone at a popular food vendor and it was quite dry. Definitely places to eat in or take away.

Value: Definitely great value for what I can see as the portions are all quite big. If you want

Extra: They have places to buy fresh veggies, fruits, fresh meats if you are want to cook yourself.

I suppose it is a big thing in Philly but really it's just a food hall with nothing in particular to make it any more appealing than most others I've had a look round.

This is one of the oldest public markets in the USA and there is something there for everyone. We used to come Saturday afternoons when I was in school here 50 years ago, and it is great to see that some of the merchants from back then are still doing business here. A shoutout to Bassett’s Ice Cream which is older than the market and still one of the best ice creams in existence.

State Fair-like atmosphere with numerous food stalls with mostly excellent good options. Wouldn't miss it.
