Walking into the terminal market is like sending all of your senses into overdrive. Everything is here from hot cookies, fresh donuts, pasta, deli meats, seafood, etc. it was a Saturday and jammed packed but one of a kind. Great philly experience.

I'm looking for unique frozen yogurt places in Philadelphia or the surrounding suburbs of Bucks and Montgomery counties. A very 'Wow" ice cream place recommendation would be appreciated as well.
