Recommend you share items with friends to try a few at one time. We shared a turkey wrap...fresh turkey, fried onions, peppers and yummy sauce on toasted wrap. Next, BBQ ribs. For dessert, cookies, ice cream, donuts. Also a small market selling fresh vegetables. Strawberries...More

Worth a walk around even if you're not buying/eating, it's an overwhelming cornucopia of (predominantly) food of all imaginable types, some of which looked great, some not-so-great. The overall feeling is of sheer quantity and variety over quality, and I'd say Borough Market in London...More

All the Amish and Dutch stores close on Sunday cause they go to church and pray I guess. I realized after walking in. They do have Dinick and some pastry stored plus the produce market. Next time will go on week day early.

We stopped by for lunch...the place was jammed to the walls. The selection of food vendors was spectacular. You can get everything in this market place. Smoked meats, fish, oysters, italian specialty, breads, peking duck , cheese, ice cream and anything else. Unfortunate for us...More

Probably the biggest I have seen. You can find real American street food...forget about counting the calories, this won’t be dietetic, but it is real US feeling. Multicultural, multi-ethnical, and tasty... Obama stopped here to taste the Philadelphia famous cheese-stake, I suggest you have it...More

While on a Philadelphia visit, our friends insisted we try Phillie Cheesesteaks and the best place to do so was the Reading Terminal Marketplace. We were not disappointed! An authentic sandwich with lots of cheese, mushrooms and onions. Yummy!!

If you park at the Parkway Garage at 12 & Filbert and take your ticket with you, all vendors in the market are *supposed* to validate if you spend over $10, then you get 2 hours parking for $4. Whether this still happens or... More
