One of America’s oldest markets is Reading Terminal Market, which is an enclosed public market situated in Philadelphia, USA. The market opened in 1893 inside a train shed operated by the Reading Railroad Company, who ran the market up until 1976. Today, the market is still housed in the train shed and is still thriving with over one hundred merchants selling fresh produce, meats, vegetables, fish, cheese and much more. The market has a grid stall pattern with an open space in the middle with tables and chairs for people to sit and enjoy their fresh food.
If travelling by car, parking in the area is quite limited but there is some street parking available. The market is situated a minute away from ‘Jefferson’ train station. If travelling on the underground subway system, use the MFL line and depart at ‘13th Street Station’.
Opening Times and Admission
The market is open daily, 8am-6pm. It is free to enter the market.
