If you pick up any guidebook on Philadelphia, Reading Market is mentioned as one of the city’s most interesting places to visit and I would have to agree with that. The End. Wait, no I got more to tell you about this market. It is a nice mixture of a true market with plenty of wares to buy combined with lots of small food places.
One of these places is Tommy Dinic’s where I noticed one of my main fav foods on its very short and specialized menu and also a huge line, both a good sign for good eatin’. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich with provolone and my first thought was how huge it was. After taking a bite my second bite was how delicious it was. I won’t bore you with my third to twentieth thought,but my twenty-first thought was ” How in Pete’s name did I manage to finish that whole sandwich and I don’t think I can stand up”.
Walking around Reading market you will notice some stalls being served by Amish people due to the proximity of Philadelphia to Pennsylvania Dutch Country. It is a lively market with many different items being offered ranging from ice-cream to seafood to organic grown veggies.
It’s a covered market place lacking much light, so crank up your ISO ( specifically your cameras ISO) and slap on a fast lens and get shooting.
