Love the Reading terminal. There are vendors with any type of food you can imagine. We had a conference at the Marriot near by so the terminal was a great place to stop in on our lunch break!

Many of the food vendors have counter service, but not all. There a a few areas with open seating for visitors to bring their take out meals to and enjoy eating while taking in all the sites of the market.
Gluten free options?
