I visited the Reading Terminal on a Saturday afternoon, so of course it was crowded, but it was all part of the experience. If you go there to eat you should walk around and check everything out first. There are so many options and it all looked good. I tried food from a few places and it was all delicious.... More

Just love it here...you can find most anything to eat, purchase unique vegetables, meats & cheeses. Love the atmosphere but be warned it can get crowded. Nice vibe throughout.

Big drawback is that it is very crowded and there... More

I've been to a lot of city markets, this one is the best. It has everything you could want. From multiple butchers, deli shops, ethnic foods and coffee & desserts. They do have little restaurants in the market so you can eat there. It's pretty big and worth it, go hungry!

American food at some of the best and many ethnic foods by authentic devoted cooks. The shops include fresh vegetables , fruits, meat and poultry , spices , coffee , wines and... More

The Reading Terminal Market is one of the places I always go to when I'm in the city. There's such a large variety of delicious food. I don't normally like crowded markets but the food here makes it totally worth it. If you're planning a trip to Philadelphia definitely stop by!

It's a place that's great for lunch and has lots of options to choose from. It's cheap food for the location if you asked me.

I flew into Philadelphia on business and had a couple hours to spare. I Decided to brace the rush hour traffic and check this place out. Very large primarily food focused mall. Nothing too exotic, but the emphasis seems to focus on quality.
