Penna’s Italian Market recognized as one of the “25 Essential Hoagie Shops” by Philadelphia Magazine. Plus, deadlines and how to order hoagies and more for the big game

Penna’s Italian Market (545 North Bethlehem Pike, Spring House) was named one of the “25 Essential Hoagie Shops” in the Philadelphia region in the February 2023 issue of Philadelphia Magazine. It was the only hoagie shop in Montgomery County to make the list.

The article is behind a paywall, so you will have to spend a few bucks to learn about all the hoagies. In praising Penna’s Italian Market, the article states:

If a deli doesn’t shimmer with the ancient patina of oil-and-vin, can you trust it to make a great hoagie? Penna’s proves you can. This gleaming cathedral of Italian American delicacies opened in 2021 with a long lineup of hoagies built on rolls from Norristown’s century-old Corropolese Bakery. For the Old Fashioned hoagie, prosciutto imported from Parma and sweet soppressata hug an oregano-flecked flurry of house-roasted peppers, lettuce and tomatoes. The fact that you’re buying it surrounded by pristine deli cases and a tasteful wood-fueled fireplace doesn’t diminish the fact that this is one of the best sandwiches in the region.
