Reading terminal food market

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.

  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.

      Oh, I am totally with you on Boqueria! In fact I think I did a post on it on my travel blog @vannilla ages ago ( when I started blogging my tagging was rubbish, so I doubt I can find it!!)


      1. How do I find your travel blog?

      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...
