Reading Terminal Market

One of my favorite things to do when visiting the Philadelphia International Flower Show, is visit the Reading Terminal Market. If you do not, look what you are missing out on : 
When you first walk in, you smell cinnamon, and the amazing sticky buns of Beiler's Bakery 
When flipped over, this yummy sticky side emerges and well, this is what heaven looks like  
There is seating available, however, during the flower show, this is hard to come by, as it is at it's busiest time all year  
The General Store has lots to choose from  
You must stop for some Old City Coffee as it is just so darn good  
Our scone and latte hit the spot first thing in the morning. I would suggest having breakfast here than at the flower show itself. 
There is more than desserts here. These amazing shrimp looked so fabulous, I couldn't believe the size of them. There is also all types of meats, cheeses and other seafood available for purchase.  
Artisan breads are here for your pleasure as well  
Chocolate by Mueller is probably the most fun chocolate shop. The molds they use to make some designs are just so downright unique. Anything here would make a great gift to bring home to family and friends:  


The Market will be open additional hours during the week of the Flower Show as follows:
-Sunday, March 4: 8am-6pm
-Monday, March 5 – Saturday, March 10: 8am-7pm
-Sunday, March 11: 8am-6pm


To commemorate the Market’s 120th anniversary, Philadelphia Brewing Co. has created a chocolate stout called Engine 1892 Market Stout, that is available at Molly Malloy’s and at the Valentine to the Market gala fundraiser. Stop by and try some today!
