The Reading Terminal Today

Actually yesterday. I was in town to cover Step Up To The Plate Serves 100,000th Meal To Philadelphians for CBSPhilly and decided to run to the Reading Terminal for a bite to eat. I completely forgot for a moment that we were in the middle of a pandemic and was taken back a bit by what I found at the popular eating spot. It was heartbreaking, but also hopeful as so many precautions were in place for protection. PLUS the bathrooms were open which is really nice to know as there aren’t many public bathrooms open in Center City.

Masks are required at all times while customers are inside the Market. Please practice safe social distancing.

The 2nd entrance from the corner is open for entering and exiting.
There are a few vendors opening, including sweet places like like Termini’s and

Fox & Son was open although most of the store is in plastic protection
