It is busy, active, exciting place for the widest range of - food, specialty items and people. Many such spaces, such as Boston's Faneuil Hall the initiator, have been re-purposed as food and general markets, Reading seems to have maintained a feeling of old time busyness and equality. It seems to have eschewed the option of a precious center for only upscale items. On this day before Thanksgiving, the market was alive, with folks enjoying meals and snacks in the food court, choosing pies for home celebrations, picking up interesting gifts (e.g. cloth books for children) and sampling the goodies in a distinctly festive environment. Our sandwiches from Dinic's (recommended by son nd son0in-law) met expectations - absolutely delicious. We enjoyed a lively conversation with the folks next to us even as we appreciated the wide variety of delicious looking and the aroma of delicious smelling foods. There needs to be more seating available as people covered waiting for empty seats, while no group overstayed their time at the tables. While we were visitors to the city, we definitely intend to return to sample a far wider range of delights.

High prices, excellent quality food, fun atmosphere. A real tourist draw. I'm pretty sure the locals stay away. Good novelty chocolate , fish, soul food, Chinese food, gifts, and philly souvenirs. One and done.

You can get good eats all the way through this place. It has something for everyone. Not much room to sit down and it's always very busy, but definitely worth going there over and over again so you can eat your way through there.

I loved both Dinic sandwiches and Beilers donuts, people travelled from far away to Philadelphia just to try their pork everything sandwich and those Amish donuts. Don’t miss it when you visit Philadelphia. Otherwise you will regret for rest of your life. Avoid Sundays. Nothing is opening!

Love the terminal for lunch, as well as quick pick ups for dinner. I often shop at lunch time in order to grab what I need to take home.
