"A feast for the senses" Reading Terminal Market Tip by brazwhazz

Reading Terminal Market, Philadelphia: 24 reviews and 22 photos

  Hmmm, candy!
by brazwhazz

The Reading Terminal Market is a large traditional market where you will find everything from local food products (including Pennsylvania Dutch) to Thai and Mexican offerings. Despite being entirely indoors, the market has a great atmosphere. It is a very inexpensive place to buy not only food, but also local crafts and gifts. As the name suggests, it is next to the bus terminal -- so if you are travelling to Philadelphia by bus like we did, you will have no excuse to skip it!

The market's opening hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. from Monday to Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
