Cool donut cutter

Over on my travel and photography blog, @vannilla, I have been posting about my recent visit to Philadelphia but I had to say something about their amazing Reading Terminal food market here. I have visited food markets all over the world – of course I have!- but this one has got to be pushing its way to the top of the list.

I understand that about a third of the outlets are Amish. You can not only take away freshly baked produce but a couple of outlets have seating for eating right there. Be advised, they don't serve on a Sunday or Monday. We were told the lines can be very long on Saturdays so best to turn up for early breakfast. Portions are HUGE so I suggest sharing- as a European I still have a problem with the amount of resulting food waste or the inches on your waist!

There's nothing pales about this!

The famous Hogie Rolls- better known as subs to you and me.


Love this!

Have a great day, and if you go to Philadelphia skip the hotel breakfast and head down here.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

  1. Love seeing markets when I’m on vacation– my favorites are the Boqueria in Barcelona and when I visited my sister in Lijang China– there was a huge open market with rows of produce and lots of street food. So many vegetables I had never met. I’m putting this one of my list if I get to travel to Philadelphia! thanks.


    • Thanks Ingrid. It had a great mix of locals and tourists the morning we went, and the fish counters looked amazing too.


i'd love to hear from you...
