Foodie heaven. So many awesome food selections, you might want to bring a cooler in the car to lug all your treasures home in. Dinic's is the star for sandwiches, but there's incredible cheesesteaks, halal food, warm cookies, candies, butchers, produce...you name it & they probably have 3-4 stands that carry whatever your looking for. A no brainer.

I'm not sure why I was expecting more of a farmer's market type setting .... there's fresh produce etc but WOW the eats options is crazy! I wanted to adopt the guy at the cheese stand (and all his goodies) .... we met some very nice vendors and over all it was a great experience. I would not bring small... More

I had discovered Reading Terminal through TripAdvisor. Holy smokes- this place is amazing! Food choices are unlimited- I ended up buying 3 desserts and taking them to-go so that I could have ice cream (one for each night I was in Philadelphia). Come hungry- your senses will be on overload - sights, smells, sounds, tastes- wow! And don't be in... More

Great food, what a variety it's almost daunting to choose. Stay all day and eat a little of everything!

Worth going to fro fast food. We had breakfast and wandered round the quality shops. An eclectic mix of people - don't be put off by the rather seedy surrounds and occasional vagrant!

It's constantly improving with nicer food service "stalls", better lighting, etc. I've watched this change over the past 50 or so years, but recently moved away. It was always fun and always had things not found other places in town. The Amish section had fresh veggies and delicious, unhealthy, fat-filled treats of all kinds - it was only open occasionally.... More

In town for one day passing through to D.C. We stayed at a hotel across the street and just had to go...three times. There are so many different foods to try. And everything we did try was fantastic.

there are a ton of places to eat in here - of note is an Amish donut store - get there early the line is crazy and the donuts are so good..... There is also a cheesesteak place and that line is off the charts - I did not eat there.
