Nice Food Market. The Amish people are there certain days in the week, and they weren't there when I visited, but still there are a lot of nice food stands!

Reading Terminal reminds me of Faneuil Hall Market Place in Boston, MA but much larger. There are so many different places to eat or food to bring home that one would not get bored returning again and again. Get some food and grab a seat, then watch the scores of people go by.

As a party of 4 we could spread out and find food to our liking and return to a seating area. No fussing around choosing a cafe or restauran. The bat at Molly Molloy's was a great place to watch the world go by.

Since we are from the Pittsburgh area, I'll use a local attraction for comparison...Reading Terminal is like the Strip District, on STEROIDS. My husband literally walked around in circles in amazement. We went there hungry, and a short time later, stuffed ourselves with delicious cheese steaks, excellent cookies for dessert, and took home some awesome beef jerky. I'm glad we... More

Crazy busy but fun and interesting. Don't miss all the food-cooked at the many restaurants as well as fresh produce, meats, cheeses and baked goods. Beiler's donuts are worth the long line. Really.

This market was an excellent place to visit. I liked sampling the wine and had a great cheesesteak! It has a variety of food stores under one roof.

Please don't miss a stop at Reading Market when you are in Philly. In fact our group said we should return and do a "progressive food tasting" the next time. They have every sort of food booth you can imagine and most are out of this world. Just in the door we had to have fresh chocolate chip cookies (we... More

Part of the Center City financial and chinatown district is the reading terminal market. Located just above the Galleria Mall on Market Street and just the block before the Greyhound bus terminal the Reading Terminal Market is really something to see and to eat and to experience! All the vendors are kiosk style. Great Amish baked goods, Chadds Ford winery... More

Reading terminal is a mall of foods...whatever taste you many have, they have it & then there's the sweets. So many options....the florist shop in there has some very pretty & fresh flowers...arrangements or do it yourself. Try the terminal if you never have. You will not be disappointed.
