Reading Terminal Market

There is a wonderful market in Philadelphia called the Reading Terminal Market and it is full of great sights and delicious foods. A market has continually been on this spot since 1860 and three of the vendors there now are descendants of original vendors. According to wikipedia, over 80 merchants offer fresh produce, meats, fish, groceries, flowers, baked goods, crafts, books, clothing, and specialty and ethnic foods.

And this guy was making a traditional Philly cheesesteak. They were delicious! (P.S. Yesterday I said it was my 500th visit, I meant to say it was my 500th post. I haven't been to Philadelphia that many times!)

I was really impressed by Reading Terminal Market. Lots of neon signs. It was just a couple of blocks from my hotel and I was in there for food a few times.

peut-être que je me trompe,mais cela fait penser au marché dans Grand Central Station. Félicitation pour ton 499th post et demain le grand jour.
maybe I'm wrong, but it suggests the market in Grand Central Station. Congratulations for your 499th post and the big day tomorrow.

Too early for a cheese steak and will skip the scrapple, but one of those jams or perserves would be perfect on a muffin right now. You saw much over your weekend trip there! Jay W. (forgot to sign the previous one!)

I stayed at a hotel near the Reading Terminal Market a couple years ago when I was in Philly for work. Everyone told me I had to try this Amish breakfast thingy that is like a block of pork byproducts (can't remember the name of it). It was quite delicious.
