Philly’s Favorite Farmer’s Market

Reading Terminal, home to mouth watering food, both local and handmade crafts, and wallet friendly prices, has been a Philly fave for years.  Located at 12th and Arch Streets, bordering Chinatown and the Loft District, this extraordinary farmer’s market transports you into a gentler, aromatic reality where the Amish culture envelops you with its warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Starting today, Monday June 18th, they’ll be commemorating the completion of the Market’s $3.4 million project with a week long series of events.  Our very own Mayor, Michael A. Nutter and other dignitaries cut the ribbon at 10am today.  The Market’s latest project, the Rick Nichols Room, will be the site for the series of events taking place at noon and 5pm every day to spotlight the many merchants, brilliant chefs, witty authors, and innovative leaders of the Philadelphia regional food system.
