“One of the best places to eat in Philly”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

If you want to try some great Amish food this is the place. The corned beef sandwiches are great. Heaps of other food as well, including the Philly Cheesesteak.

“Awesome Place for Foodies”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

Very cool indoor marketplace and eatery. There really is something for everyone here. Make sure to get the Italian Pulled Pork from Dinic's, it's legendary!

“LOVE this market!!”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

RTM is between Market East Station and the Convention Center; and I ate there at least once every day during Comic Con. It's too bad I was at a hotel, because I'd love to have been able to shop in the farm stalls- all from local farms, much of it organic.
There are dozens of food choices; and from what I saw they were all reasonably priced. I particularly recommend Carmen's for cheesesteaks, and Smucker's has great breakfasts served all day.
The bathrooms here were kept in very clean condition, too.

“A really neat place if you are hungry, not really an attraction”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

I reviewed this as a restaurant and gave it 5 stars, but as an attraction or shopping area, it is more appropriate as 4 stars. This review is written differently to represent the different section in TripAdvisor.

1. This is an attraction, since an organized food market like this is not common in every city.
2. Their is a variety of stores, both food and non-food. The fresh fruit and veggies are good, and the food pantry items are fun, especially the fun Amish jams and butters.
3. Unlike the restaurants, the store items don't have very long lines.
4. There is some historic significance to the place, considering they had a refrigerated storage space in the 1890s.

1. I personally would not go out of my way to shop here if I was in town, but not in center city. However, I did see plenty of tour groups, so maybe I am wrong.

Go if you are in the area. Definitely go if you are hungry.

“Roast pork and Dutch licorice”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

Whenever we are in Philadelphia, we have to make a stop at the Reading Terminal Market. Why so? My husband, a native Philadelphian, just has to have a DiNic's roast pork sandwich and I, a Dutch transplant, simply have to buy at least a pound (or more) of assorted Dutch licorice at the candy stall across from Termini's bakery stall. No visit is complete without these two purchases. Philadelphians don't know how lucky they are....
