Italian Market

As Seen In: "The Gang Hits the Road" (Season 5)
Location: South 9th St. and Christian St.

The Gang tries to take a road trip, but before leaving the city, they hit up the Italian Market, where Mac and Charlie squabble with a fruit salesman over the price of a pear.

The scene was filmed in front of Los Amigos, a grocery store that's part of the famous outdoor market, one of the oldest and largest in the country. The real heart of the Italian Market is on South 9th Street, between Christian and Washington Avenue. Despite its name, it's home to several stores and restaurants organized around various ethnic groups. It was honored as a Pennsylvania State Historical Marker in 2007; the marker can be found in front of the mural of former mayor Frank Rizzo.
