A Pennsylvania Dutch-themed sign at Reading Terminal Market

Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia is a century-old institution in the heart of the city.  There has been an Amish presence in the market for nearly three decades.

I write about Reading Terminal in my book, as well as in a post last year on Amish markets.  In a recent article, Summer Beckley of The Temple News gives a brief but interesting history of the market, which has seen its share of ups and downs.

In any case, visiting the market and taking in its diverse mix of merchants is an experience to remember, and a trip worth taking if you find yourself in Philly.
