Still predominantly Italian it has the best of many cultures and cuisines to offer the shoppers. Gourmet cooks and tourist alike can explore and discover the depth and breath of the multitude of products available here. The streets of the market are still lined with fruit and vegetable stands made famous by the movie Rocky and just walking down the street on gets the scene of history and pride this market has to offer.
