Established in 1892, Reading Terminal Market is the oldest, continually operating public market in America. The indoor farmers market, named an “urban food paradise” by Thrillist, has more than 80 unique merchants bringing the best of rural Pennsylvania’s farm-fresh produce and dairy alongside a rich array of culturally diverse cuisines, crafts, goods and iconic Philadelphia staples including cheesesteaks, soft pretzels and “The Best Sandwich in America.” Served at DiNic’s, The Travel Channel approved “Best Sandwich in America” is a masterpiece of slowly roasted pork, rubbed with Italian herbs and spices, served thinly sliced with sharp provolone and broccoli rabe. In addition, come sample soul food, beignets, BBQ, gyros, Thai and ice cream from the country’s oldest, existing ice cream shop- Bassets.
Head over to Reading Terminal’s northwest corner and watch as Pennsylvania Dutch merchants based out of Lancaster County cut, fill and frost fresh donuts at Beiler’s or sit down at Dutch Eating Place for a warm apple dumpling served with a cool splash of heavy cream.
The market is centrally located steps away from famed Philadelphia attractions including the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Independence Hall, and the Liberty Bell. Come stroll through twelve aisles and four avenues of fragrances and flavors; Philadelphia’s Reading Terminal Market is a must-visit dining destination unlike any other in the world.
