I had an awesome cheesesteak and my colleague a fabulous grilled cheese sandwich (from different stalls!). There is a huge variety of wonderful foods to try here. I definitely recommend it!

This place is pretty awesome. It's the oldest running farmer's market in the US, and there are a ton of food options. There is a lot of raw food to buy and take home to cook, and there are also plenty of places to buy food. From BBQ to fish to burgers to veggies this place has everything.

I worked in Philly and visited Reading Terminal many times from 2000 to present. I go to purchase certain meats. I would go to eat lunch or go to buy ice cream. Food is always good with many varieties.

We went to the terminal to eat, but found much more. This is a great place to get out of the heat/cold; kill some time; pick up fresh meats/flowers/seafood/pantries/ice cream/wine...they've got it all! There's even a book store in the back corner. We picked up some Amish-made products to take home. Honey, jelly, popcorn, etc... It's really busy and aisles... More

Food stalls with produce, fish, meat to buy. Many, many food vendors for lunch or dinner, arts and crafts, music, homemade candies and baked goods, fabulous ice cream. Not to be missed. We had to go twice!

This is a must-see for anyone who lives food. Here you can find Philly faves- such as the roast pork sandwich, scrapple, apple butter, doughnuts, seafood and even more. Steer clear at lunch - it's a zoo. Mornings are good.
