|About these ratings|
When it comes to satisfying your appetite in Philly, you can only eat so many cheese steaks. So when lunchtime rolls around, head to the Reading Terminal Market in the Market East District. This market is located beneath the Reading Railroad's 1891 train shed and harbors almost 100 different vendors. Here, you can sample food from around the world -- including Greek, Thai, Mexican and Indian specialties -- while perusing homemade crafts and jewelry. While there is a central dining area, many of the food stalls also have their own seating.
The Reading Terminal Market is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. While you don't have to pay to browse, you may want to carry some extra cash on you just in case something catches your eye. For more information, check out the market's website.
