What a great market. Really more of huge food court (with some specialized food shops) Almost anything you could think of - oysters, sandwiches, Peking Duck, bbq, Penn Dutch, deserts, general restaurants, ethnic…amazing. One of the (non historical) highlights of visiting Philly.

It was my husband’s first time and my 4th time visiting here. There are so many different choices of cuisine that will please and appeal to even the pickiest of people. There’s literally something for everyone!

An array of eateries and produce shops and a bit of something for most appetites. Opens for breakfast about 8am and rather unnecessarily the security guard kept us waiting until bang on 8 in the cold. Jobsworth. The market itself is busiest at lunchtime ....Expect a queue from lunch onwards for Beilers doughnuts (which are really good) and for cheesesteaks at Carmens. Breakfast at Dutch Eating place was decent value but be there at 8am or you’ll have to wait for a seat. Some of the food (sushi) is overpriced but the overall experience is great. Just take a walk around. Coffee continues to be a major let down in the US generally and Philly is the same….not a decent cappuccino anywhere. The only problem I have with the place is a lack of seating. Trying to eat standing over a small table in a crowded area is a challenge.More

If you don't mind standing in line for food and they competing for a place to sit this area is mildly interesting- buzzing with activity- mosty tourist. The food is decent, casual fare and there are several areas selling cheeses, meats and such.. I was...looking for some artisan bread but couldn't find any.More

Great place for foodies. must try roast pork hoagie with broccoli rabe and provolone cheese from Dinic's and the Original Turkey; their turkey sandwich is real good! The produce market has very good prices; love the donuts from the Dutch market. Bassett ice cream is...a must try also. There are a lot of good eateries ; the tough part is deciding which!More

Not all eating places are good places. I definitely like to go to the Dutch place for breakfast or for lunch but you can’t miss out on Frank’s dear honey barbecue chicken wings and the cornbread is life make sure that you check out the...Italian bakery at the far corner on the Filbert Street entrance and there is a Chinese restaurant gourmet Chinese restaurant that they definitely are authentic not that panda express or mess that you’d be getting through a drive-throughMore

There is a place to sit in the middle of the market, it was crowded but not that hard to grab a table. I suggest you leave someone queuing for food while others keep an eye out for a vacant table. All places good, depends... More
