“Love his market”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

This week we visited Philadelphia after four years of absence and we are happy to report that the Reading Terminal is as good as ever, if not better! We enjoyed the traditional smells and tastes of the region with our grandkids. They learned so many things from the vendors and their foods and crafts, that it was like visiting a Museum, but tastier!

“Something for everyone.”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We went on a Saturday and the place was really packed and buzzing. The atmosphere was great but there were huge queues at all of the food stalls so be prepared for a long wait! Once we had our food it took a while to find somewhere to sit to eat it. We ate in the market several times and each time the food was good and great value for money.
Avoid Saturdays if you don't want the huge queues but be aware that the Amish stalls will be closed on Sundays.
We're back in Philly next year and we'll certainly be back at Reading Terminal Market.
NB. although the market is flat and technically wheelchair accessible it would actually be very difficult to get around on a busy Saturday in a wheelchair and it would not be easy in the crowds if you are elderly or unsteady on your feet ...... go on a quieter day.

“Wonderful place to visit!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We ate lunch at the market and walked around to view all vendors. The aromas emanating from the market were delicious and intoxicating! I wish we could have more time sampling each sector of the market but you can only eat so much and there are many other places to visit.

“It's a must do in Philadelphia!!!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

My family LOVED this market. So much variety in venders. Places to eat and shop. We ate at the Amish restaurant and it was yummy! Must try the pumpkin roll at the Amish bakery there. Best I have ever had! The Philly Cheese steaks looked amazing! Parking was tricky...but worth the hassle.

“Philly's Cornucopia”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Amazingly diverse place to go for lunch or to pick up a gift for a friend or family member. It's very well maintained and the sense of community with all the different vendors takes you back in time a bit.
