The Italian Market feels like it's straight out of another era, with pushcarts and open stalls selling fresh goods, produce, and cheese Tuesday through Saturday (the end of the week is better). Many shops are open until noon on Sunday. Particular favorites are Di Bruno Bros. at 930 S. 9th St. (tel. 888/322-4337 or 215/922-2876) for cheese, Sarcone's Bakery at 758 S. 9th St. (tel. 215/922-0445) for sesame-seeded Italian bread, Isgro's at 10th and Christian streets (tel. 215/923-3092) for cannoli, and Fante's at 1006 S. 9th St. (tel. 215/922-5557) for kitchenware. To reach the market, head 5 blocks south of South Street.
