    Hey, I like this post! My parents had a soft pretzel and ice cream stand and a candy stand in the Reading Terminal Market back in the late eighties. My uncle has a candy shop there called Sweet as Fudge (my grandparents work there sometimes too). They have a website: http://sweetasfudge.com/ Click on the About Us link – I helped put up the overhead sign. :)

    I absolutely love Reading Terminal Market. I used to live right around the corner on 12th St. and would spend every Saturday morning walking around. Such a rich atmosphere. I found a connection for Amish furniture and I’ve been collecting ever since.

    A Terminal Market? That sounds depressing. ha ha I’ll go read up about it – I’m sure it’s maybe an old train terminal or something that’s been converted?? Never heard of it – sound neat. :)

    It’s a sign of a healthy market and community when Plain people set up shop. Pragmatic as they are, they want to see a return on their time and effort. I did ministry in a farmer’s market for a couple of years; many vendors were hobbyists, a few made their livelihood there. We were the only Plain people, though – the potential sales weren’t enough to attract the Mennonites across the province.

    Reading Terminal is an amazing eclectic, diverse, & international oasis in Philadelphia. New York Bagel, and Subway are not welcome. Seafood, fresh catch, cleaned, or cooked. Six continents of food stands. Teas, coffees, pastries, books, you name it. The space is a blend of aromas and spices that rivals the best flower arrangements. PA Dutch run; butcher shops, bakeries, snacks, and lunch counters. The lunch counters sold me. Service was quick, welcome, & friendly. Food was fine, price is reasonable. People hover around the area to grab a seat. Try Dutch Eating place. Reading Terminal, a fine destination.
