"Great place to cool down and relax" Reading Terminal Market Tip by alex0312

Reading Terminal Market, Philadelphia: 24 reviews and 22 photos


This place is great. It is right next to Chinatown, on the other side of Arch St. This place has everything, starting from teas, veggies, herbs, fruits to chocolate, fish, sea food, coffee, and much much more. People come here from Lancaster County with fresh veggies, fruits, bread, deli and much much more. So if you are staying in a hotel around center city, stop by and enjoy some great food. There is also a really good ice cream shop. If you've ever heard of Preston & Steve show then you will be glad to know that that ice cream place now (since April 15th or 18th I think) sells ice cream called "Gadzooks." Also check out cheeses that they are selling there, especially the Lancaster County cheese. And you have to try the sweets! You've never seen anything like it. If you want to catch Pennsylvania Dutch marchants, make sure you stop by Wednesday 8am - 3pm, Thursday - Saturday 8am - 5pm
because those are the only days they are there.
