This weekend, take a break from your normal routine of exercise and working out to reward yourself with some fantastic food from Italian specialty store in South Philadelphia. This Saturday and Sunday, the 9th Street Italian Market festival will be taking place. Once a year the streets are shut down and all of the local restaurants and vendors offer their best for those coming from all over the area to taste the best of Philly’s Italian foods.
The festival will offer those attending a chance to dine outside as well and walk the market to purchase fresh foods and vegetables. You can sit down and enjoy a great meal and take some food home to cook a gourmet Italian dish here at Jefferson Pointe.
Although the festival is geared toward Italian foods, there is more available for those who wish to venture off the beaten path and try something new. Vietnamese and other Asian cuisine along with Mexican dishes are available at some of the nearby restaurants. Either way, it is a great way to treat yourself to a day of great food and fun.
