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.
