What is the Strip District? The Strip is a thriving community of small businesses. Every neighborhood has its own unique vibe but there’s nothing like the Strip District anywhere in town—or perhaps the the entire world. Arrive on a bustling Saturday and see why it’s one of the biggest draws in Pittsburgh, with its ethnic grocers, street grills, sidewalk merchants and string of small shops. A neighborhood doesn’t get more authentic than this: long blocks of side by side stores with old wooden screen doors that still bang shut, hand-lettered signs on produce and everywhere, tantalizing smells--of aged cheese, fresh roasted coffee, or just-popped kettle corn.
This neighborhood is bustling with businesses where one can find fresh produce, meat, poultry, fish, spices, and knick-knacks of all kinds at very affordable prices. People from all ethnic backgrounds and social classes can be found on the crowded sidewalks, squeezing between sidewalk sellers displaying their wares, and food vendors making made-to-order hot dogs. Sometimes you can see a game of bocce while joining in the ritual of Saturday afternoon shoppers searching for all your household needs along Penn Avenue.
Come visit us at this Pittsburgh Tradition!
Getting to the Strip
The Strip District extends from 11th Street to 33rd Street, but most of the tourist/yuppie traffic heads for the markets between 16th and 24th. If you're planning on visiting the Strip, park on Penn between 24th and 27th and walk for a bit, or prepare to be gouged severely by parking lot attendants near the markets. Beyond 28th Street, most of the buildings are used for factories, warehouses, trucking facilities, and of course the city's auto pound.
