S. 9th Street Italian Market

A Year-Long Anniversary Campaign


We like to party

Due to the the recognition of the success of the Connie’s Ric Rac marketing activities in time leading up to the formation of Milk Street Marketing, founder Ron Bauman was sought out to by the business association to spearhead the significant 100-year anniversary campaign. We are honored to be able to say The Italian Market was one of our first clients! In fact, the launch of the campaign, complete with Mummers and news vans coincided with the official launch party for Milk Street (at The Ric Rac, of course). Oh, we also shot a video that day to promote the annual Italian Market Festival. Do yourself a favor and watch the full version.

We worked closely with the leadership of the business association to develop a campaign that would celebrate the Italian Market’s rich history while looking forward to its bright future. The strategy included ways to drive more foot traffic to the Market itself, benefiting all merchants in the district. As a high profile tourist destination, the opportunity to celebrate such an historic milestone become the foundation for our overall campaign strategy. A variety of events were planned throughout the year to celebrate the rich traditions and diverse culture of The Market, with an emphasis on engaging new audiences.
