Wherever we go worldwide, my husband and I love to visit the local markets. The best of those markets in the U.S. is Reading Terminal Market. The variety of choice is phenomenal, as is the quality of the offerings. We like to go early before the Market fills up at lunchtime with locals and tourists feasting on everything from pulled pork sandwiches or Italian pastas to Mediterranean falafel and hummus. We walk every aisle while we sip a cappuccino from Old City Coffee, which makes Starbucks look like the upstart it is.

What is there not to love about Reading Terminal Market? I've been coming here since I was a child and it never disappoints. My favorite shops include Riehl's Cheese Shoppe, Sweet as Fudge Candy Shoppe, Termini Bros. and more. There is a plethora of goodness here and I'd highly recommend it.

At least one Saturday a month, my family comes into Center City to enjoy breakfast and shopping at the Reading Terminal.

The Dutch Eating Kitchen is the absolute BEST breakfast, and well worth the minimal cost.

The Fair Food Farmstand has great organic vegetables, sauces and honeys.

Amazulu has eclectic, authentic African jewelry, clothes, home goods, accessories and body treatments fro all over the globe!

Monday-Friday, after 5pm, The PA general Store has happy hour where all the homeade cookies are $1 EACH!!!! There are nearly 30 varieties of cookies!

Hershel's East Side Deli has mouth watering Pastrami, cornbeef, egg salad and turkey sandwiches! Did I say MOUTH-WATERING???

Beck's Cajun has the best BREAD PUDDING with WHISKY SAUCE! YES...WHISKY!

Finally, grilled cheese becomes an adult classic when you create one at Valley Shepherd Creamery & Meltkraft Grilled Cheese! Move over chil'rin...let the adults sit down!

This place has EXTREMELY CLEAN BATHROOMS! My only complaint is the cleanliness of the seating areas. People do NOT clean after themselves! Yes, the janitorial staff works HARD, but customers feel like they do NOT have to throw their trash out. Disgusting.

The Reading Market is a great place to fulfill everyone's appetites. Everyone in your group can get something different and then meet up in the common area and eat together. We enjoyed the Crepe shop. The fresh fruits are a great thing to take back to your hotel for healthy snacks. Loved the ice cream shop too! We had breakfast and lunch here as well as desserts. It was great.
