Love Note #5: Reading Terminal Market

Emily Paull
Favorite Spot: Reading Terminal Market (Old City Coffee, Metropolitan Bakery, Pennsylvania General Store, Hope’s Cookies)
Neighborhood: Market East
Address: 51 N 12th St

I am: Crafter, Animal lover, Soon to be Fairmount resident.
Years in Philly: 2 semesters
Current home: Roxborough

My love note: Reading Terminal is its own small city in the midst of Philadelphia. People converge here, bonding over a shared love of food and community, enjoying the sights, smells, sound, and just being around everyone else. The environment here seems to nourish body and soul — and specifically fills my needs for cookies and caffeine.

Love Note #4: Reading Terminal Market

Ross Markman
Favorite Spot: Reading Terminal Market (Iovine Brothers Produce and Giunta’s Prime Shop)
Neighborhood: Market East
Address: 51 N 12th St

I am: Guitar learner, Rubix cube completer, butter hater.
Years in Philly: Off and on for 34 years. Current run 5 years long.
Current home: Fairmount

My love note: Reading Terminal, in many ways, is a microcosm of Philadelphia. The people, the food, the atmosphere — all decidedly Philly. On any given day, a blend of locals, tourists and suburban housewives all in pursuit of a good cheesesteak fill the aisles and nooks. I love it for the quality and cheap produce, the turkey bacon, and the best pickles in the city. The Market is also a place for myself and my girlfriend to unwind before a week of school and work. We have lunch, laugh about whatever, and talk about crap we’re going to buy for our new apartment.
