Tons of food options, dominated by Pennsylvania Dutch vendors. A little too crowded and busy for my taste. I'm glad I checked it out.

Going in around mid-day it was busy with locals who clearly know where to head for a varied choice and a great atmosphere. I wandered round a couple of times before I was able to make up my mind and I found it at Meltkraft Grilled Cheese, what I decided upon would be described as the best cheese melt I’ve... More

Went to grab a Cheesesteak and browse the stalls on a long lunch - was so fun! Loved all the people and colorful-ness of the market, plus lots of different shops to meander and check out.

If you're in town, you have to visit Reading Terminal Market. If you go hungry you will find yourself struggling to choose just one of the many terrific places to eat there. There are SO many options, and all are so so good. One of our standbys for breakfast on Saturday is The Dutch Eating Place. The Amish serve up... More

The Reading Terminal offers great produce and an array of food options. Many multicultural options, local specialties and artisan cheese. Something spicy? Comfort food? Quick bite? Sweet or Savoury? There's something there for you.

We popped in Saturday afternoon over Thanksgiving weekend. The place was packed but well worth dealing with the crowd. It's an awesome place loaded with all different types of craft food, produce, and merchandise. Make sure you stop by Dinic's and grab a sandwich. Best in town!

Would definitely visit this place especially if you are a foodie. Wide variety of food stalls around from doing philly cheesesteaks to fries to waffles to chinese. Also wee book shops and bakery/sweets. It is definitely a busy place so keep your wits about you as there are rumours of pickpocketers in this place but you should be fine as... More

Pick up some local food. It seems to be packed on the weekend. If you can handle the crowd it is a great place to grab something to eat or take with you. Locals mix with tourists.

I get to philadelphia a few times a year & I NEVER miss going here for either breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, coffee or shopping!!!! It's always the highlight of my trip! If you like Thai food, there is a place smack dab in the middle of... More
