This is the coolest city market. It's a true multi-cultural experience. From Amish to Zulu, it's all here and it's all about the food. There is fresh produce, meats, seafood and general grocery as well as numerous restaraunts, bakeries and buffets. It's a great place to grocery shop for unusual food items. It's one of my favorite places for lunch... More

No trip to Philly is complete without going to Reading Terminal at least once it twice! DiNic's is my absolute favorite- get the roasted pork sandwich with broccoli rabe and extra au ju... Mouth watering! Then if theres any room left, get a dessert from Flying Monkey Bakery or home made ice cream from the dairy farm ice cream place... More

We love the Reading Terminal Market! They have the best deli, and Italian Roast Pork sandwiches in the city! Any time we go into Philly (for the Flower Show, Home Shoe, Franklin Institute, etc), we always head to the Reading Terminal Market for lunch. The atmosphere is great… a true, bustling city market. There is something for everyone here.

There's so much going on at the Reading Terminal Market you just can't help but to enjoy your self amongst the visitors and locals. It's one of those places you must experience at least once. It is a must do when you are in Philadelphia and it's as simple as that. If you're in Philly, you must go.

And ethnic foods as well - lots of choices. You can also buy cooked foods and desserts, and some areas to sit and... More

Reading Market is not a single restaurant; its many small places to eat under a single market roof. What you might expect in a farm market. The eateries range from fried food to pizza (very good), to a beer garden (fun and good) to the best sandwich on earth at Dinics--- pork and sharp provalone with broccoli d'rape, wet; it... More
