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.
