Best place to eat in Philadelphia May 11, 2013
The Reading Terminal is THE place to eat in Philly. It has something to please everyone and has some secret gems that shouldn't be missed. The famous Fourth Street Cookies in the front corner of the market are the best I have ever had. A lot of locals go there for lunch so expect big crowds during the day and avoid going on Sunday because a whole section of the market (the Amish section) is closed on Sundays and they make great pretzels, ice cream, and fudge. After you eat be sure to walk around and look at the vendors who have a variety of homemade items from all over. As someone who grew up about half an hour from the market and went their frequently, I would highly recommend this place to all travelers.

Philly food staple Jun 13, 2011
Philly is a very big city with people from all over the world, each with their own culinary tastes and traditions. Reading Terminal Market is by far the most efficient way to experience the most of the Philadelphia food scene. Inside this building you'll find around 100 vendors of all kinds of goodies, with ready-to-eat food from cheesesteaks to chop suey, to fresh fruit and catch-of-the-day seafood. It's like Baltimore's Lexington Market, only it's in Philly which makes it way better.

An array of foods and feasts at Reading Terminal Market Dec 05, 2010
Reading Terminal Market has been the principal urban fresh food market in Philadelphia since 1892. The space above was once a train shed, and it was easy to bring fresh food to the market from surrounding farms by train. Reading Terminal Market continues today as a market for fresh produce, meats, and seafood but also has many delis, food counters, and ethnic food cafes. There are dozens of food vendors and wholesale and retail stalls. You can find almost anything here from a Philadelphia Cheesesteak sandwich or a New York Reuben to Soul Food and Indian food. Amish farmers from Lancaster sell their fresh produce, meats, and preserves at the market. It’s great to wander through just to see the many varieties of food offered.

Amish delis and New York delis sit side-by-side. Which has the best pastrami? You'll have to try them both! (Amish vendor stalls are closed on Sunday.)

I definitely recommend coming here for lunch. (Don’t eat elsewhere beforehand!) There is no end to the selection!
