We stopped in on a rainy Saturday for lunch. Not real busy. It is a farmer's market and food options are endless. We had Puerto Rican food which was bland. Make your choice of food by the busiest food stand, that seems to be the...More

Reading Terminal reminds me of those busy covered fresh produce markets that you tend to get in Southern Europe except bin this instance, the empahsis is on fast food for the most part, albeit it from all around the globe. It is extremely busy at...More

Hands down, my absolute favorite thing I did while visiting Philadelphia! Definitely check out Beiler's Doughnuts, and also the 4th Street Cookie Company. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven!

Huge variety of both raw and prepared foods. There’s so many choices that it may take you a long time to decide what you want to buy! Beware that the market closes at 6:00 on most days, so don’t plan on going in the evening.

We went on a Sunday during our recent visit to Philly. It was very crowded (probably because of the weekend). Tried food from 4 different shops but all of them were average. The fresh food section had a good variety though.

I was told there is a stall you can get those there at. Supposed to be pretty good. Didn’t have a chance to eat there though.

If you park at the Parkway Garage at 12 & Filbert and take your ticket with you, all vendors in the market are *supposed* to validate if you spend over $10, then you get 2 hours parking for $4. Whether this still happens or... More
