Great place for lunch

It's a place that's great for lunch and has lots of options to choose from. It's cheap food for the location if you asked me.

I flew into Philadelphia on business and had a couple hours to spare. I Decided to brace the rush hour traffic and check this place out. Very large primarily food focused mall. Nothing too exotic, but the emphasis seems to focus on quality.

Met some family members there this morning and as a first time visitor, I was quite impressed. FRESH is the word to describe it. Meats, fruits & veg, coffee, chocolates, flowers and unique gifts...they are all there for your entertaining. And some great sandwiches, beverages and treats to fuel the shopper. In Philadelphia, it is a MUST stop.

Whenever someone asks me what to do in Philly my first comment is the Reading Terminal Marketo. The people, the food, the ambience of a world class market. Whatever your tummy requires you can find it here. Great Philly food, Amish, BBQ, Cajun, soul,deli, Asian, etc. Also cookies, coffee, and ice cream. You can park for two hours for four... More

Very fun place to try a bunch of different types of authentic Philly food, including pretzels, cheese steaks, roast pork sandwiches, and Amish offerings.

If you are anywhere near downtown Philly you must go to Reading Terminal Market and simply eat your way through it. Over 80 different vendors in there. Amazing atmosphere.

We always enjoy lunch and shopping at the Amish Meat Market for all kinds of jerk products. Certainly something for everyone here to delight in.
