Take a Trip to Pittsburgh's Strip

Sought out for its incredible eateries, great shops, and rich history, Pittsburgh’s Strip District attracts visitors from all around the world. Also known as Pittsburgh’s Historic Market District, the revitalized and thriving neighborhood, once an industrial hub and factory hotspot, is now home to diverse food options, century-old shops and stores, as well as an old world market that will delight the senses. Its boundaries between 11th and 33rd Streets.

With its location near the Pennsylvania Railroad yards and a heritage deeply rooted in the iron, glass, and steel industries, the Strip knew it was always destined for greatness. Carnegie’s legendary business phenomenon had its start here, along with ALCOA and George Westinghouse’s air brake technology. But even though its history was forged with metal, it was the green fruit of the earth, grown and nurtured in its soil, that would create the neighborhood we know and love today, famous for its wholesale produce at its old world style farmers’ market.

Wanting to grab a bite to eat in the Strip District leaves you with many options, all of them delicious, so bring your appetite. You’ll find some of the best food in the city here, in culinary styles from all around the world. Kaya, the top-rated restaurant in Pittsburgh, is home to a Caribbean-inspired menu and famous for its great burgers and happy hour. Bar Marco is another one well-known for its happy hour, which offers 50% off all food and a cocktail on weekday happy hours. Grab an all-American hoagie at Peppi’s Old Tyme Sandwich Shop or enjoy breakfast or a home-style meal at Pamela P&G diner. Mexican is also an option with Edgar’s Tacos, Casa Reyna, and Eleven’s burritos. The Strip District is also home to coffee and tea shops as well as many wineries and breweries like Wigle Whiskey, East End Brewery, and Pittsburgh Winery. Some other places worth visiting are the Pennsylvania Macaroni Company, DeLuca’s Restaurant, Klavon’s Ice Cream Parlor, and Primanti Bros. for the famous sandwich.

After exploring the great food and specialty shops of the Strip, visit Pittsburgh’s Historic Public Market. The modern market returns to traditional European market where people would shop daily for fresh food and groceries. There are plenty of vendors so bring your grocery list if you’re local or at least try a tasty treat before leaving. Visit the website for more information and hours about the market and here for a guide to parking and directions.
