Everything there is yummi. You can eat the famous philly sandwich. Go with sneakers because you can walk around. The area is very touristic. Treats are great!

By far one of the most exciting markets ever. Amazing good value food with cheesesteaks that made you make silly noises while you chewed. Sensory delight.

I had an Apple Fritter donut OMG worth every calorie, so delicious. Can't wait to go back again to try out other flavors. Long lines but worth the wait.

Reading Terminal is absolutely my favorite place to visit when I am in Philly. All of the shops are wonderful and of course I do have my repeat spots. Never leave the Reading Terminal without something to go. Highly recommend a visit.

Enormous venue with food selections galore. The only problem was that it was so jammed packed with patrons that I felt like cattle going to slaughter. The aisles were crammed with people, jostling elbow to elbow. The food lines were so long and one would get trampled trying to wait in line. Was told there was abundant seating, but none... More

A variety of foods to try all in 1 place. Within feet, you can get a cheesesteak, Amish baked goods, seafood, fresh vegetables, and ice cream. It is a great place to go to sample different offerings of the city. It is also near Chinatown so you can wander there as well.
