Lots and lots of places to eat and little shops. I could spend all day there! It smelled so wonderful! It was hard to decide where to eat because the options are so diverse and plentiful! We were just visiting but if I lived in Philly, I'd go everyday.

A huge Faneuil hall. Fresh meats, delis, and every sort of food. We had breakfast there ( pretty average). But there was a great candy store. Too bad we were not able to eat there. Worth the visit, even just to look

This is the most fun place to have lunch in Philly! Hands down! And get on the long donut line...and order a maple one! And get a cheese-steak! And get candy! And just walk around the whole place!

We love the variety of foods offered at the Reading Terminal Market! So much to choose from: ethnic foods from all around the world, fine Amish meals and baked goods, and local specialties -- cheese steaks anyone?! You can also shop for fresh meats, seafood, and vegetables to cook at home. Every vendor stall is an adventure!

Ran into Reading Terminal to do some quick shopping. Stopped at the Down Home Diner for breakfast. Hadn't been there for years. Excellent funky breakfast spot. Great menu, reasonable prices, attentive waitresses!
