This is a signature attraction in Philly and you must eat here. There are plenty of food options for all tastes and some terrific shopping.

Some of my favorites include The Original Turkey which serves… uh… Turkey. 4th Street Cookies and Termini Bros Bakery are outstanding.

There are so many different choices and everyone has their favorites, you’ll just have to look around and try something.

It can get very crowded especially when a big event is at the Convention Center but it is well worth the extra effort.

Seating is limited so you may not get a table. If you need a warm comfortable spot to sit you can always try the lobbies of one of the five hotels within a block of the Market. Theres a small public park two blocks to the south near the Canopy Hotel with tables and benches.

The Terminal is a unique experience! The food choices are astounding. This time we gave Molly’s a try. The homemade pop tarts are so good. Each time we go we try somewhere different. We have never been disappointed. I think my pictures speak for themselves.

Even though our stay in Philly was short, we went to Terminal Market twice. From cheesesteaks to Dutch food, from pastries to smoothies, there are just too many interesting options. Not a single thing we tried was disappointing.

Super busy market. They've got meats, produce, deserts, coffee, and lunches made to order. If you plan to eat here, have one from your group jump on the first open table and hold onto it. Restaurants really crank the food out quickly, though prices are up a few dollars above a similar place outside the market. Worth popping in for a stroll, with great people watching.

The entire market was booked solely for the conference attendees as a closing event. Visited previously on a number of occasions, and again the experience was again very pleasant and allowed exploring even more than what you would do on a normal visit. Highlight was a bourbon tasting at Pennsylvania Libations.

Reading Terminal Market is such a perennial favorite! Iwent to Drexel and graduated in '77 - we often went there for the experice and the wonderful food offerings. Can't say it hasn't changed but the myriad of culinary delights is still incredible! You MUST plan on goign to RTM next time you're in Philly!

I loved both of my trips to Reading Market Terminal while on my long weekend trip to Philly! It was so bright, vibrant and colorful and there were so many great food options, it was hard to decide what to get! It was also crowded both times, which personally I like to see in a public market like Reading! On my second visit, I even bought some amazing baked goods to bring home from a couple of different bakeries! One of my favorite things to do when I visit any city is wander through its local market and this one absolutely did not disappoint. It’s one of the best public markets I have been to.

Incredible experience being in this place. I would suggest coming hungry! My husband I were a bit upset we had just ate and as we were walking through the city we came upon this market. Food smelled amazing, as you walk in you just know you’re at the heart of Philly. We were able to squeeze a few desserts from there, which were all very good! Must checkout if you’re ever visiting Philadelphia

There are SO many options and very little seating. It was difficult to navigate the area. However I ordered items from three places and everything was fresh and delicious. Lots of fresh seafood to pick from also. Great place to take a group.
