Apartments near Reading Terminal Market

Philadelphia is a historic city bursting with things to do. In more recent years, the City of Brotherly Love has truly begun to establish itself as a food mecca, welcoming new restaurants by esteemed chefs from around the globe. But there’s one particular hot spot that has withstood the test of time and, as you seek to find a new place to call home, you should bear in mind, because it will undoubtedly become a favorite haunt.

If you’re searching for apartments near Reading Terminal Market, then you know you’ll always have access to some of the best, freshest food offerings the city has.

This souped-up farmer’s market has been hocking locally produced fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, bread, pastries, and more for well over a century, and it continues to be one of the most-visited places in the city—and rightfully so.

One of the largest and oldest public markets in the country, Reading Terminal Market is open seven days a week, all year round (with the exception of a small handful of holidays), and is composed of around 100 different vendors all packed into a closed-in building in Center City. So no matter the weather outside, this market is ready for business.

Head to By George for that Philly staple sandwich that absolutely cannot be overlooked: the cheesesteak. The thinly shaved slices of beef topped with perfectly melted cheese, peppers, and onions, all stuffed into a hoagie roll, is the perfect start (or finish) to any day. A portion of all sales here go toward one of a number of local and national organizations dedicated to feeding children in need.

Ethnic stalls supply you with ingredients you need to whip up your own delicious creations right at home. Kamal’s Middle Eastern Specialties can hook you up with classic ingredients like harissa and rosewater. Or swing by Little Thai Market for curry paste, fish sauce, and lime leaves. Jonathan Best Gourmet Grocer is where you’ll want to visit for hard-to-find oils and seasonings. But the real claim to fame here is the freshly made lemonade; it’ll have you returning time and time again.

And if you’re looking for a truly authentic Pennsylvania Dutch meal, it doesn’t get much better than Dutch Eating Place. Whether you’re digging into a plate of fresh blueberry pancakes or a piping hot, flaky chicken pot pie, the food here does not disappoint. No matter what, don’t walk away without trying a slice of the molasses-laden shoofly pie. It’s a Dutch staple and never disappoints.

We’ve barely even begun to scratch the surface with all that this place has to offer. So make sure, once you find that perfect fit of the apartments near Reading Terminal Market, this is top on your list of places to visit. Happy eating!
