About Strip District
Any visitor, or resident for that matter, of Pittsburgh is sure to find a taste of the old world when spending an afternoon or morning in the city's Strip District. The Strip, as it is known to the regulars, is a couple block long and couple block wide area uptown of the city. Here you will find the quintessential farmers market, on an international scale. The Strip District of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania opens its eyes to a weary world long before the sun rises. Produce, fish, baked goods, cheeses from around the world and a host of other ethnic and regional food items arrive by truck or are prepared onsite in anticipation of the arrival of shoppers looking for the best deals on food items for their shops and restaurtants, as well as individuals hoping to purchase fresh flounder at Wholey's Fish Market or imported cheese from Sunseri's. The Strip is basic, bare bones, wholesale shopping. The sidewalks outside each shop are lined with vendors set up with tables to display their wares: homemade bread and pretzels, gyros made fresh on the spot, sausage, pierogies or hand-dipped chocolates. You name it and someone has it available for sale in the Strip District of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Keep your eyes alert for the occasional street musician. While the talent may be lacking, the ambiance created by their presence is priceless. Of course, Pittsburgh loves her sports teams so the Strip is also one of the best places in town to purchase sports memorabilia.
