Reading Terminal Market Tours

Reading Terminal Market
Dating from the 1860s, Philadelphia’s largest covered food market is one of its most beloved local landmarks and popular tourist attractions.  It’s set adjacent to the Convention Center and a SEPTA regional rail station, as well as the city’s main Greyhound bus station.

Home to a wide array of food vendors, the Market also features flowers, cookware and locally made gifts. Restaurants here range from Middle Eastern cuisine to traditional Cantonese to fresh-made donuts. Some of its most distinctive vendors are Pennsylvania Dutch bakers, farmers and craftspeople, which only do business here from Wednesday through Saturday. 

If you’re a fan of cannoli, Termini Brothers Bakery makes the best in the city; for cupcakes, try Flying Monkey. Be sure to seek out Philbert, a bronze statue of pig that serves as the Market’s mascot and a unique “piggy” bank; coins donated here go to programs that support healthy eating habits.
Address: 51 N 12th Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19107, USA
Hours: Mon-Sat 8am-6pm; Sun 9am-5pm
