I found this place to be excellent for a quick delicious lunch. I found a pork sandwich in there that was to die for, DeNic's I think. I also found there to be more seating than in the typical market food setting. I found a table easily both times I was in there.

It was amazing... after the long long walking in cold windy weather the covered warm friendly market was great experience. You can find everything needed for eating! Online eating, takeaway or to be prepared staffs. It is highly recommended to visit it specially at lunch time.

This will please all parties regardless of culture or age - there is certainly something for everyone! Even late in the afternoon, there is great ice cream and take home for dinner. And a fun place to hang out, people watch, and centrally located within walking distance to many Philly attractions. Of course you can get a great Philly cheese... More

I have had a passion for the market since I was introduced to it as a child ...let's just say several decades ago. The market has produce vendors, butchers, bakers and even candlestick makers. If you are visiting from out of town and don't have a kitchen to prepare food come here for breakfast, lunch or early dinner. There's soul... More

Often we think jury duty lunch spot at Reading Terminal. The truth is that this gem has just about anything you need. There's some incredible sammie shops, delicious cheesesteak eateries, yummy ice cream, Amish food nirvana, a fabulous produce stand, the perfect florist and so much more! A plentiful butcher is available and a fish monger to boot as well.... More

This market has it all. Food to eat, Food to go and Food to take home and prepare. Would have ate here had I known about it. The Flying Monkey Bakery was awesome. Bring an appetite and don't be shy. Experience the flavor of this city in one area.

If you have been to Fanneuil Hall in Boston, picture that on steroids. There are countless food options in this one place. Fish, ribs, salads, Italian, Greek, Chinese, desserts, it's all here. Great place for a group, as you can all split up and find what you want. We had members of our grip try pizza, fish, Philly cheesesteaks, Chinese... More

Visited twice over a weekend in April 2014 - loved it! Great lunch spot with so many cuisine options. As a vegetarian I would highly recommend it - plenty of choice, all of it tasty and fresh.

if you've been to pike place market is Seattle, it's kind of the same but across the other side of the country, and with less sea food (-: a lot of options to eat and shop for unique presents, but mostly food. it is very crowded so be ready to rub on some people and enjoy less oxygen than usual...

Though the Reading Terminal Market can get a bit crowded during lunch, it is a great place to go for some local food, do some window shopping for local items, people watch or just grab a snack.
