    I had a gyro at Olympia Gyro. It was price and food was good. This place rocks. If your in Philly make a stop at the Reading Terminal. Just beware this place closes at 6pm during the week.

    Visit the under-sung cafeteria-style counter at Little Thai Market for crab dumplings whose simplicity belies their addictive power ($5.50), and the sweet BBQ chicken on a stick ($2.50). Read more

    God bless the Amish vendors. They make this place so great. The local farmer bring in raw milk which can be hard to find. The produce is so good and cheap as well. You can't go wrong here.

    What can I say about this place that hasn't already been said? Make sure to go early and get the donuts. Don't miss out on the corned beef and pastrami sandwich.

    It is impossible not to come out with at minimum some produce, baked goods, and amazing candy or fresh fudge! It can also be easy to get lost if you aren't from Philly because it is so huge!

    Great market. Lots of dining options from BBQ, Chinese, Burgers, to Philly Cheesesteaks. Even have chocolate stalls, fresh fish and farm goods from area Amish. Right next door to Hilton Garden Inn.

    The market is a busy, crammed place, so try not to be too overwhelmed. Go in with an open mind and indulge in all the types of food like pizza, crepes, cheesesteaks, fresh seafood, cheese and gyro.

    The beer garden has been replaced by a pub named Molly Alloy's featuring lots of good beers. This is excellent if you enjoy craft beers. Bad if you enjoyed bringing terminal food in for cheap booze.

    Visit Fair Foods and Lancaster Dairy Company for raw goat's and raw cow's milk. If you are lactose intolerant, you will be able to handle the raw goat's milk without a problem. It tastes amazing!

    If you're looking for a wide variety of good, cheap food in Center City this is the place to go! They have everything from burritos, crepes, sushi, and produce. Make sure you come hungry.

    Best of its kind that I've been to--huge variety of great food. Try the butter cake from Flying Monkey Bakery, or the donuts from Beiler's (Amish) Bakery for dessert. Or any meal, really...

    It can be expensive, but you can't beat the variety. Over 20 great places to eat. Highly recommend The Original Turkey and the cajun BBQ place. A must stop every time you're in Philly.

    I spent many wednesdays here doing my groceries in iovine brothers. Has many locally produced, fresh greens. The market has a wide variety of eateries and shops. Ill miss reading terminal dearly.

    You can get ANYTHING you want here. Seriously. Sweet potato fries at the vegetarian counter, soft pretzels at the Amish counter, ice cream at Basset's. Just go to walk around, you'll find something.

    In Philly? Near Chinatown? If you are hungry but indecisive GO HERE. Try a roast pork sandwich with sharp provolone from DiNic's or a Turkey Dinner from The Original Turkey with sides. Amazing. Read more

    The Reading Terminal Market is everything God intended life to be. We would recommend some places, but why rule out spontaneity. Just go, people, go and celebrate life as it was supposed to be.

    This place is incredible! Lots of great food vendors as well as gift/souvenir vendors. From baked goods to lunch to a mini replica of the Liberty Bell, this place has it all.

    This place is amazing. Go with plenty of time to browse and eat. Local produce, cheese, and baked goods everywhere, but don't miss the duck at Sang Kee Peking Duck House. A+++.

  • Bob R.

    Take the tour. Carolyn does a great job of making the tour of the market and the history of some of Philly's favorite foods fun and interesting. It's well worth the price.

  • Rafi S.

    You can't really go wrong with food choices, but they can be overwhelming. Grab a table near the Flying Monkey dessert place and then send runners to pick up a bunch of things to share.

    I absolutely love this place every time I go to Philly. You must eat at Kamal's. Their falafel wraps and real fruit smoothies are awesome!

    Get yourself some meat, cheese, and fresh bread at Metro, with apple dumpling and fudge for dessert, and you've got a world class meal.

    Since 1893, fresh produce and diverse offerings have drawn crowds to this farmers market. Try the Fair Food Farmstand for local produce and grab a bite at Beck’s Cajun Café.

    Chocolate dipped cookie at Famous 4th St Cookie Co is worth the calories. Flying Monkey has uniquely flavored buttercream frostings. Franks kielbasa and sauerkraut was a tasty sandwich.

    Golden bowl food is seriously some of the freshest Chinese food I have ever had. And you WILL need a to go box. Great bang for your buck.

    Great place to grab food and people watch, but it's too overwhelming with no room to move, long lines, expensive food, and no where to sit. Go there for the atmosphere but be prepared for chaos.

  • Martin K.

    It's a Philly Classic that every turist should visit. A heaven for food lovers, definitely. Make sure to pay a visit to Profis Creperie and Bassets Ice Cream :) Excellent!

    A bit of a walk from SRCCON. Get a roast pork sandwich with sharp provolone and broccoli rabe from Dinic's (W of center eating area). Then follow that up with a donut from Beiler's (NW corner).

    So much variety. There is something for everyone here. Just make sure you leave yourself enough time to find it . Parking can be crazy but it's worth the trouble

    Get the carrot, ginger, kale and pineapple juice from the smoothie juice place. Too bad I don't remember the business name. It's refreshing and it reset my upset tummy.
