Everything from soup to nuts at the Reading Terminal Market
This historic market has been operating since 1892, and is beloved by locals as a destination for lunch, grocery shopping, or buying locally-themed gifts at the Pennsylvania General Store. Over 70 businesses sell fresh wares including ice cream, cookies, meat, seafood, produce, Mexican cuisine, and artisan grilled cheese sandwiches, to name a few. Locals line up daily for freshly baked goods from the Amish-owned Beiler's Bakery, which also operates a separate donut stand in the Pennsylvania Dutch section of the market. The market's location across the street from the Philadelphia Convention Center can mean throngs of visitors on convention days; try to get to the market as early as possible to avoid the crowds.
