Very interesting place, I guess you can call it one stop dining where you literally can find almost any kind of cuisine and a massive variety of food choices to select from, it was a little overwhelming when I first walked in, I had to walk around to scan most of the shops and familiarize myself, we had soups and...

Not just couples, but EVERYBODY loves the Terminal Market. It is fun, interesting and gastronomically satisfying. Eat something great, shop for this and that and take some food home for later. (And don't forget to save room for the inestimable Bassett's Ice Cream)

The market is a good selection of goods. They range from cooked and uncooked foods, jewelry clothes etc. The market is highly crowded, I would say more than your average. When in a place of this level of crowds (dumping or brushing into each other) watch your pockets. The location is pretty central as well. The reason it doesn't get... More

While attending a conference at the Philadelphia Convention Center, some coworkers and I decided to try lunch at the Reading Terminal Market. It was worth the short walk. The variety of options for lunch was fantastic, and everyone found something they enjoyed for lunch. The only drawback was the limited seating compared to the size of the crowd. We opted... More

Love the Reading terminal. There are vendors with any type of food you can imagine. We had a conference at the Marriot near by so the terminal was a great place to stop in on our lunch break!

This is our go-to place to bring our out-of-town guests -- and then we wonder why we don't come here more often just for us! There are so many food choices, both ready to eat or to take home to cook a gourmet meal. Food choices come from around the world and around the corner in Philly! You can have... More

There is no atmosphere. The Reading Terminal Market is old school market. Lots of noise, lots of bustle. Great food of every stripe, and not enough seats, but it is a must see. Want artisan soap? gifts from Africa? Chinese, Salad, Greek, Pa Dutch, Home Style or other food? It's all here. Want the best turkey sandwich in the world?... More
