There are a lot of places to buy kitchen equipment in town, but Fante's is probably the largest. It's been in the Italian Market for a long time. This is handy if you've just bought a grouper and some shallots in the Market and need a new Calphalon pan to cook them in, or if you've just moved to town and forgot to bring the old family spatula. They also have a decent coffee and tea department, where you can buy beans, leaves, pots and espresso cups, or just order an espresso to go. A good souvenir item is a cookbook of local recipes. There are about five different books available here. Mail order is available through their web site.
Tucked away in the enclaves of South Philly lies a den of authentic Middle Eastern cuisine known as Bitar's. The Brothers Bitar prepare falafels, shish-kabobs, gyros, kafta(ground lamb and spices) and other items prepared on pita bread. Authentic imported ingredients are used and are available to take home in the marketplace first and restaurant second establishment. Simple sidewalk tables and a few tables inside provide for a casual lunch. Many customers get their selections for take out.
The country's largest daily outdoor market, Italian Market purveys fresh produce, meats and dry goods from the nexus of the Italian community in South Philadelphia. Distinctly Italian hams like Sopresseta, Prosciutto, and Capicolla, special olive oils, cheeses and other rare imported foodstuffs are available at the myriad of shops and stands. Giant sandwiches and the infamous "Philly Cheesesteak" are peddled from various eateries. The market's biggest claim to fame came when featured during a scene in the 1976 film "Rocky" where Sylvester Stallone embarks on his famous run, ending up on the steps of the Art Museum, a distance over seven miles.
This Victorian historic landmark was the old Stock Exchange, and now it's been transformed into a modern collection of shops and eateries. The food court has everything from gourmet coffee to the famous Philly cheese steak. The shops carry everything from Liberty Bell souvenirs to fashion ensembles. Located on Independence Hall, the Bourse also has a performance space and a Mexican restaurant.
Mulberry Market is a perfect stop for guests in the historical district. Located across from the Betsy Ross House, the market is in close proximity to many historical sites and hotels such as the Omni and Holiday Inn Independence. Stop by for a sandwich at the eat-in deli during your historical tour or come back to shop for groceries. There are big sandwiches, hoagies, salads and usually some entrees such as roast chicken, lasagna, or a roast. Choose from a great beer selection.
