We’ve made many changes and updates in the past year to help make your shopping experience at Reading Terminal Market easier and more exciting. Below are a few things we hope you take advantage of in this new year!

$4 Parking

We partner up with two garages to offer $4 parking for up to two hours! Bring your parking garage ticket into The Market with you and get it validated by any merchant when you spend at least $10. When you go to pay for parking, your cost will be reduced to $4! No need to hassle with finding an open parking space and paying a meter while you do your grocery shopping! We’ve got you covered! After two hours regular parking rates apply. The two garages’ locations are listed below:

Hilton Garage (located at 11th & Arch Streets)

Parkway Garage (located on 12th and Filbert Streets)

FREE Shopping Bag Concierge

Arms tired? Let us hold your bags for you while you continue to shop around The Market, or feel free to explore the city bag free!

On Saturdays from 9 am – 6 pm, and Sundays from 10 am – 5 pm we offer refrigerated and dry storage for your purchased items. The best part is- it’s completely free! The Shopping Bag Concierge is located behind The Head Nut. Be sure to ask the Concierge about Saturday curbside pickup!

FREE Recipe Cards

Located in Center Court next to the statue of Philbert the Pig you’ll find an array of seasonal recipe cards that we encourage you to pick up. The cards include the necessary ingredients for each recipe, which vendors you can find those ingredients at within The Market, and a step-by-step recipe to make these delicious dishes! We’ll be changing out the cards seasonally, so be sure to check back often.

Ask the Experts on Facebook LIVE

On Fridays at 10:30 am we’re LIVE on Facebook with a different expert merchant each week. We have a conversation with the lead expert of each store and highlight how they contribute to the uniqueness and diversity of The Market, as well as their expertise in their particular products. We encourage viewers to ask questions live during the interview and we can answer them as the conversation progresses. If you’re busy at 10:30 am on Fridays, no problem! The videos live on our Facebook wall and can be viewed at any time.

FREE Chef Tours: Shopping with Chef Tess

Every 1st & 3rd Saturdays learn how to optimize The Market for the ultimate grocery shopping experience! Chef Tess takes you around The Market and highlights merchants & food items that are relevant to your interests. Learn how to pick and prepare meals using your favorite foods. Be sure to show up a little early, as tours are first come first serve. Meet in front of City Kitchen, tours starts at 10 am (located next to the Rick Nichols Room & The Head Nut.)

FREE Tasting Thursdays

Every Thursday from 12:00 – 1:00 pm visit City Kitchen (located next to the Rick Nichols Room & The Head Nut) and join Chef Tess for a free sample of the specially picked food of the day. Each week will feature samplings of products from a different merchant. Past Tasting Thursdays have included items such as house-made pâté, leg of lamb, crab salad, seasonal winter soups, and spiralized vegetables.
