“The only place to go for lunch!”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

Reading market is a large city market which would be great fun for those who have not experienced such markets within their own cities. But the best part is that the food is so good. There are various kiosks and types of food to choose from. But so much better than the food courts of malls -- real ethnic/American good home cooked quality food that is great for lunch. Don't be afraid of lines -- they move very quickly. Three of us got Philly cheesesteaks with different toppings and all of us were so happy and so full after eating these gigantic subs! We shared fries that were also good, real potatoes and crispy. One person got a turkey (real slicked turkey not lunchmeat) sandwich on fresh baked grainy bread. She had room for ice cream! A great landmark for a historic city like Philly.

“a true Philadelphia landmark”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

the choice of different cuisines from around the world is huge here. Many stalls and fresh ingredients which are prepared on the spot. We went here every day for breakfast and lunch, really too many stalls to choose from.

In the morning we went for the typical American breakfast at an old-fashioned diner, for lunch we chose lobster, clams and oysters at the fish shop of John Yi Fish Market. Order a large live lobster which is immediately cooked and served on ice. Great fresh lobster, super service!

For cocktails and beer Reading Terminal Market was an ideal place too. There is even a decent Japanese sushi counter. Great food market in the city center of Philadelphia. An absolute must.

“Great food, lots of choices!”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Had a delicious breakfast in one of the diners and a good, hearty lunch at the other one. It was very difficult to make a choice as all the food spots had an excellent selection and everything smelled really delicious! I was also able to do a little Christmas shopping as many local farmers had their produce for sale: honey, homemade cookies, soaps, candles, and Christmas ornaments. Great experience!
