Italian Market


Kudos to our friends over at Passyunk Square Civic Association, who recently received the American Planning Association's National Planning Award in the "Grassroots Initiative" category. We were lucky to be one of the consultants they used in the formation of their Lower Italian Market Revitalization Project plan, and enjoyed working with this group immensely.

If you think of the Italian Market as one big outdoor grocery store, PSCA's efforts to pretty it up, spruce up the signage, and liven up the dead areas are right on in terms of attracting more shoppers and getting them to circulate longer. In a world of chains and of bland options, unique venues like the Italian Market, with the help of innovative groups like PSCA, just might have a place in our shopping portfolios.
