We visited in an afternoon on a Saturday. The place was packed. There were many different cuisines, food, from different vendors available. It's a good place to grab a cheap lunch.

We were in town for the Philadelphia Marathon and this is right across the street from the convention center where the race expo was being held. This place truly has every taste of everything. There are rows and rows of stalls to sample all food that Philadelphia is famous for. On the first day we were here, we tried the... More

This is one of the first places I go when visiting Philly. I can't rave enough about this place! Anything you're looking for, you'll find here. And it's not fast food. Good delicious comfort foods, produce, coffee, wine, gourmet cheese & delis. Amish baked goods, you name it, it's there.

If you stay anywhere in the the city you have to visit the Reading Terminal Market. You can go there everyday for weeks and have a different meal each time. There's too many restaurants to list. The place can get a little crowded, but it's worth having a little patience to eat some of the best food in the city.

As you walk through the market you are met by a huge variety of cooked and raw food. The Amish food stalls are amazing and really reasonable. Do not go there if you are hungry !!

I'm from Columbus, so we have an enclosed local-grown market here--meaning I'm more familiar with the concept that just knowing about it. This place is one of the best in the country. There are so many great eateries that if you can't find what you want, there's probably no place that you will. Not fine dining, this is more open-air... More

We love to come here, as no matter how many people we bring, there is some kind of food to make everybody happy! It is fun to taste different foods, and we always leave room for ice cream. It doesn't matter that it is often crowded, as that just adds to the ambiance. You can always find a place to... More

So, this one doesn't like fish, that one doesn't eat pork, the other one is a vegan - no problem - take them to Reading Terminal Market. There is something for everyone. Granted, it is crowded especially on the weekend, but it is great place for lunch. If your visiting Philly, what a neat place to experience some local food... More
