Reading Terminal Market

12th and Arch Streets, Philadelphia, 19107, PA

Another must is a visit to Reading Terminal Market at 12th and Arch Streets. If you enjoy food as much as my family does, this is a treat for all of the senses. Even our child enjoyed eyeing the wide assortment of jellybeans, chocolates, and other confections. Every type of food from cheeses to meats to seafood and more are available here.

If I lived in Philadelphia I would do all of my grocery shopping here. They even have a bathroom in the back. The Reading Terminal Market was established in 1893 when trains came into the train shed. It is the nation’s oldest continuously operating farmer’s market. Sit down eateries, like Hershel’s, are scattered throughout. You can also purchase homemade soaps, cookware, plants, books, and other items.
