Reading Terminal Market
Regarded as the best farmers' market in America (at least by Philadelphians), the Reading Terminal Market is a terrific place to sample all the culinary grandeur Philadelphia has to offer. Experience the traditional cheesesteak, a custom-made deli sandwich, or an authentic Pennsylvania Dutch hearty home cooked breakfast prepared by Amish farmers. Aside from the prepared foods, over 80 food merchants purvey fresh fish and meats as well as an assortment of exotic and local fruits and vegetables.
This market is incredible! Almost anything that one could want can be found here. Fresh seafood, flowers, dairy, meat and poultry markets, wine, fresh produce, bakery, huge, delicious sandwiches stuffed with your selection, ice cream, coffee and much, much more! The market is clean, and there are counters for patrons to sit and eat and the vendors are polite and helpful. I was on a tight time schedule so could only spend less than an hour there but I intend to go back the next time I visit Philadelphia. The only downside is the long lines at some of the most popular vendors, which is prove positive that the food is good!
This covered market was once a train terminal. Now it hosts dozens of stalls and restaurants. You can pick up fresh flowers, produce and meat, as well as local crafts and food.
My favorite are the stalls run by the Pennsylvania Dutch who are dressed in their traditional attire. I'm told that this isn't a put-on for the tourists and that it's their genuine lifestyle. In any case they make great fresh doughnuts, pretzels, and corndogs! Also, we had a great lunch at an Amish food counter.
It's walking distance from Independence Hall and definitely worth a trip!

A small open air French cafe in downtown Philadelphia? Yes. Good luck getting a seat. The menu is generally Mediterranean:
hummus, olives, several choices for meat and fish, and a long list of focaccia variations. The decor is minimalist: ...
