We stopped at Reading Market twice on a recent visit to Philadelphia. Very fun. Clean, expansive and lots of food choices, some grocery & some prepared. Had very good lasagna at By George (near 1st street/avenue and mid-market). Also had some pretzel-wrapped hotdogs. They were great. Purchased plenty of produce, bakery and freshly-squeezed juice for later snacking. Wish we could have tried more food but there's only so much room in a stomach. Would take weeks to try all of the interesting options. Parking in the area is pretty expensive but the Market has a deal with the Gallery Garage at 11th & Arch. Buy at least $10 of goods from any of the vendors, get your ticket endorsed and you pay just $4 for up to 2hrs of parking. Without doing this, you'll pay close to $20 for 2hrs parking most anywhere within a block or two of the Market. Location is about a 6-8 block walk from the Constitution Hall area. If I worked in downtown Philly, I'd be at Reading Market several times every week.

A veritable smorgasboard of eateries in a historic building. We came here a couple times and really enjoyed the variety of local foods available. There is a place with fresh carved corned beef that was so tender it melted in your mouth. Bassets Ice-Cream is excellent. And the various Amish places had wonderful donuts & egg sandwiches. Only drawback is that it's really crowded at lunch time.

If you are in Philadelphia, you must try the Reading Terminal. This bustling attraction is a must. No matter what kind of food you like, you will find something. Fish, ribs, creative grilled cheeses, doughnuts, Cajun...and more. It is crowded but fun to walk around.

I found this place to be excellent for a quick delicious lunch. I found a pork sandwich in there that was to die for, DeNic's I think. I also found there to be more seating than in the typical market food setting. I found a table easily both times I was in there.

It was amazing... after the long long walking in cold windy weather the covered warm friendly market was great experience. You can find everything needed for eating! Online eating, takeaway or to be prepared staffs. It is highly recommended to visit it specially at lunch time.
