what a sympathetic and animated place to have a good and quick lunch, especially if you attend conferences at the conference and exhibition center next-door.

Wow - my daughter and I were staying at the Marriott and just wanted a quick bite to eat. She is very particular about what she will eat - must be vegetarian, must be all natural, etc.. We found lots of options for her and I was able to get great coffee and find lots of things I like as well. My daughter was delighted to see Amish people working there (she had read about them but never seen any before). We also were able to find a few local items to give as gifts when we returned home. This is a definite must see. Unfortunately, it closes early, so we weren't able to eat dinner there or visit again before we left. Location is right out the back door of the Marriott which was really convenient.

I attended a conference across the street from the market (at the Marriott) and went to the Market every single day for lunch and to wander about. The produce markets were stunning, the food options were amazingly diverse (although not a vegetarian I do try to stick to vegetarian food when traveling and there were a TON of places to go), and the vibe is just fun and funky. If I lived there, I'd go all the time.

I bought some cookbooks featuring the Market from the cookbook vender and I really wanted to get some of the linens from the stall across from the cookbook vender but didn't have room in my suitcase.

I hope the citizens of Philly realize what a gem they have. Some of us aren't lucky to have a place like that in our home cities!

The First place I want to go to in Philly. The atmosphere, the food, the heritage, the food, the diverse people/cultures, and did I say the food? It is great! Take your time, don't wait till you are starving, you won't be able to make it through without seeing all the choices. I love it and would go back there tomorrow.

I come from Boston, and I'm ashamed to admit that the Quincy Market pales in comparison. This is a great place to just wander around or to do some serious food shopping. It is also a great place to eat. Rather than go to more expensive places, I could easily eat here for an entire weekend - maybe a week!
