This is located in the old train station. It is an interesting market to visit where there are many food vendors who sell an amazing variety of delicacies.The items and displays are very appealing and you are tempted to try some of them. This is definitely worth a visit.

The market offers a variety of choices for the discerning foodie- fresh produce, excellent Asian/MidEast delicacies, souvenirs and more. Bring your own eco bag for your purchases. It's worth visiting and would definitely wont miss it if I get a chance to be in Philly in the future.

Staying in Philadelphia this past weekend and my husband and I used the market as our breakfast place. Fun to walk around and see all of the food vendors - everything from an Oyster Bar to Amish farm stands. Reasonably priced goods and easy access at this old train station.

Every single food type must be represented at Reading Terminal which is the largest market of it's type I have been to. Enjoyed an excellent Pad Thai from one of the vendors in the middle of the market, i think it was one of the best meals I had in Philly. The assortment of chocolate and candy stores was exceptional.... More

"Market" is too small a word to describe the Reading Terminal Market, which hosts nearly 80 food and gift booths. In this converted train terminal, you can find everything from homemade donuts to fresh fish to Amish country cooking to Greek fare, and everything in between. You can go to the Reading Terminal Market with a specific destination in mind--such... More

Really enjoyed our visit to the Reading Terminal Market! Went there to purchase snacks and fruit for a roadtrip, as well as having lunch. Enjoyed the best roast pork sandwich ever, and had the Amish experience when purchasing home made goods from them. Excellent customer service at each stall and restaurant we visited, and the prices were well worth it!... More

The Reading Terminal Market is an experience not to be missed. So many sights, sounds and tastes. You name it, they've got it. Everything is reasonably priced. There's even entertainment. We especially enjoyed the Pa Dutch food. You can't beat the freshly baked donuts, filled and frosted in your choice of flavors. The 5-10 minute line is worth it!
