Deli-food of all kinds are here (yes, even roast pork sandwiches), ice cream, sweets, veggies & groceries to take home, and even utensils/gadgets for the kitchen can be had here. I love just going in and walking around... More

This place is amazing. So much to see and many options for food and shopping. We went early in the morning so it wasn't as busy and crowded.

Very interesting place to visit. So much to see and taste. So many options for food. But a fun place to be. There were restaurants to sit and eat, food court style restaurants, mini grocery stores, and lots of bakery type items.

Just go! You cannot resist the sights and smells of this market. We grabbed steak and cheese sandwiches for lunch while shopping for chocolate and soft pretzels. So easy to just walk and enjoy.

You will not regret coming here! We could have spent all day at the Reading Terminal Market. They have something for everyone. Very reasonable prices on everything. Very friendly people as well.

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!
