- The country's largest daily outdoor 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.
