Reading Terminal Market makes the list, including a mention of the merchant Dutch Eating Place.

And if you’re looking for more delicious Pennsylvania Dutch edibles at the market you’re in luck: there are a total of 13 PA Dutch vendors currently listed on the Reading Terminal Market website and they are all located in one section.

Why exactly is the farmer’s market located in an old train station? Before the construction of the Reading Railroad terminal in 1891 a farmer’s market had long been using the location at Twelfth and Market. As part of the deal to secure the location, the railroad company agreed to house the market’s merchants in the new station complex, and paid them a cool million to boot!

The Reading Railroad went bankrupt in 1971 but the market remained and today hosts 85 vendors offering:

“Locally grown and exotic produce. Amish specialties. Fresh meats, seafood, and poultry. Handmade confections and baked

goods straight from the oven. Everything you need to create a memorable meal, from cookbooks, to table linens, to kitchen ware, to fresh cut flowers, and more. Plus the widest variety of restaurants under one roof.”
