Reading Terminal Market – Philly, PA

It is pronounced “Redding” Market, and it is wonderful! We have nothing like this in Metro Detroit (closest would be Eastern Market and it does not even compare).

Meat Booth, with More lunch meat than I have ever seen, in such a pretty display. Excellent Prices as well.

Reading Terminal Market is filled with everything you could imagine eating in a giant food court style. I checked it out online prior to arriving in Philly, it is explained as “One of America’s largest and oldest public markets, housed since 1893 in a National Historic Landmark building, the Market offers an incredible selection of locally grown & exotic produce, locally sourced meats and poultry, plus the finest seafood, cheeses, baked goods, and confections.” Warning this location is only open 8am- 6pm – which is weird, because you miss prime time dinner time, and it is really late for breakfast.

We are set in advance on eating Pretzels and Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches.

Brett had the Philly Cheese Steak too
So many choices it is overwhelming in the best way! I loved the fruit and Veggie market and we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner at this location and could have spent a week eating here without getting bored.

Were a Metro Detroit, Michigan, couple – second marriages for both of us – and we dream of retiring early to Travel the World. Follow us while we try and figure out to raise our kids, and save to retire. David is a Robot Programmer, Laura is a Medical Physicist. We put our kids before ourselves for years, saved and ate at home and now after years of all this sacrifice and raising our kids - we are closing in on empty nesting, and we realized we have the opportunity to retire earlier than most and follow our dreams to travel the world. How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. Our original retirement date was January 1, 2021. We are reviewing the option of working another 3 years but prefer to keep the 2021 date, either way we will be retired by 55 years old - still trying to figure out how, but working toward our goal everyday, while enjoying each other and our blended family. Follow us to see what happens. All images on this blog are copyright (c)
