Market to Pantry #16: Reading Terminal Market, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


From Teresa, in Burlington, North Carolina:

Don't know why I didn't send you some photos of my train trip to Philadelphia and the Reading Terminal Market. This trip was my adventure to the "big city" by train in October of 2010. I went to meet up with some friends on an internet cooking forum.

I came home with PA Dutch chipped beef, herbs and spices, wok cooking tools, a new baking sheet and lots of memories. A great trip!

You had me at the blue crabs! What a lovely market.

Farmers Market here I come!!!!Thanks for inspiring !!

Could use a few of the mint juleps today hahaha

many thanks for sharing

The market photos are such a teaser. I want to go on down the aisles, read signs, pick up some of those amazing vegetables.... Thanks for the visit.

Never seen a blue crab... Amazing! Lovely place.

Reading Terminal Market is a legend in the Philly area. I haven't been there in years, but apparently it's more vital than ever. According to their website, 100,000 tourists and Philadelphians visit the market every week. It's certainly worth the trip!

Reading Terminal Market is a Philadelphia treasure. When I lived in Center City, I used to shop there every Saturday morning.

I am so sad that Harry Ochs & Sons Meat purveyors have closed shop at the Market after so many years. In my early years of cooking they were an invaluable resource for teaching me various cuts of meats.

LOVE the photo of the blue crabs! For a crab lover, that photo is just gorgeous. They have such beautiful colors in nature and after cooking.

Teresa, I love the Reading Terminal Market! I live in a suburb of Philadelphia, but I can take a train in and be there in 25 minutes - including the (indoor) walk from the train to the market. There are all kinds of prepared food stands too - many ethnicities, including a whole Pennsylvania Dutch section. And my favorite part: the huge variety of shoppers! Thanks for reminding me - I have to go again soon!
