Since the early 1990s, the Reading Terminal Market has become one of Philadelphia’s most popular tourist destinations.
With so many vendors and tasty treats to try- the market can be a bit overwhelming for a new comer or even a Philadelphia veteran. The “Taste of Philadelphia” food tour rolls everything into one tour around the market that is sure to enlighten and make your taste buds water. Carolyn Wyman, author of the ultimate “Great Philly Cheesesteak” book, leaves from the market information desk at 12th and Filbert every Wednesday and Saturday at 10am to reveal Philly’s favorite sandwiches, breakfast foods and snacks in the city.
Wyman’s wealth of information about Philadelphia food history leaves no stone unturned and you even get to try a few of the Philadelphia staples along the way!
At an affordable rate of $15.95 per adult and $8.95 for children this 75-minute tour won’t eat away at your wallet or your time- only your appetite!
Insider’s Tip: Plan to eat before or after the tour. Although there will be sampling, it is more of a talking than tasting tour!
