If you are ever travelling the east coast of the USA, or are ever near Philadelphia I would 100% recommend visiting the Reading Terminal Market. I’d visit Philly for a number of reasons, posing at the Rocky steps, being a tourist and visiting the Liberty Bell and independence hall. It really is a beautiful city with lots of history behind it. But the main reason, being a complete foodie, would be to visit The Reading Terminal Market. It is honestly insane. You will find yourself the best Philly cheese steak sandwich around not to mention 100s of other foods, cuisine’s and deserts.
The reading Terminal Market is an old, urban farmers market, established in 1892. The market offers numerous types of fresh produce from meat, cheese, bread and fruit. Theres a wide range of counters for you to get food, you can sit down for a spot of lunch or grab something on the go or do a little food shopping for home. I personally loved the cookie counter and grabbed a coffee for the road. I couldn’t brave a Philly cheese steak sandwich, so I went to a couple of different counters to make my very own sandwich of dreams. It was still impressive and very american.
It reminded me, a little of Camden Lock Market, London. The hustle and bustle of it, its a very busy atmosphere but with more food than you could imagine. I was in awe of the cream cakes and pastries not to mention the famous Philly cheese steak sandwiches. You are really spoilt for choice at the Reading Terminal Market. A really great experience if you are visiting the city!
