Our city of Philadelphia is known for so many great things which, no doubt, includes our food!
When it's food you're looking for in Philly, you really don't have to go much further than Reading Terminal Market, right?
I mean, the place is wall to wall with all kinds of delicious treats!
Well, it seems that the rest of the country agrees with us too as Reading Terminal just received quite the honor! How so? It was named the BEST farmers market in the U.S.!
Yup, the Online Farmers Market released a list of the 5 best farmers markets in 2018 and it came out on top!
What brought it all the way to the number 1 spot?
Here's what they said:
"As one of the U.S.’s oldest public markets, Reading Terminal has become a piece of American history. Located in the history-rich city of Philadelphia, it fits right in. Locals and tourists can agree that this market is exactly what you hope for in a farmers market. This Philly treasure is loaded with vendors that cover it all. We’re talking locally made products, fresh meat, fresh fish, and no shortage of a good, ready to eat bite. Reading Terminal is open almost every day of the year and is rightfully dubbed one the best markets in the nation."
I mean, I can't really disagree there! If you've never been, this is definitely the perfect opportunity to make your way over. I'd recommend a roast pork sandwich at DiNic's, which has been rated one of the best sandwiches in the country time and time again!
