Friends,

I wanted to update you on the Reading Terminal Market’s status in the midst of the Coronavirus outbreak in the Philadelphia region. The Market is an essential business and accordingly is still open. We are operating on a revised schedule: Open Monday-Saturday 8am-5pm and closed on Sundays.

Please note that starting Thursday, April 16th, you will be required to wear a mask or face-covering to enter the Market per the PA Dept. of Health.

To facilitate social distancing, we are limiting the number of people who can access the building at any one time.  At this time, we are only permitting access through door #2 (Dienner’s/Lancaster County Dairy on Arch St.), door #4 (Carmen’s on 12th St.) and door #9 (By George/Iovine’s on Filbert St.).  If there is a line, please wait patiently at those doors until the security guard admits you.

Starting Wednesday, April 22nd we will set aside a dedicated shopping hour every Wednesday from 8-9am for senior citizens (age 65 and older).  During that hour, only the door #9 on Filbert Street (between By George and Iovine’s) will be open, and a security guard will check IDs. We are asking other customers to respect these special hours for those who are most at risk in our communities.

All of the Market’s fresh food merchants (meat, produce, seafood, cheese, dry/shelf stable goods) are stocked, open for business and you will find their products available online at www.readingterminalmarket.org for web-based shopping and delivery. We continue to add ways to make the Market accessible during this challenging period:

• Additionally, even if a merchant is not seen on the Mercato platform, you can still call their store and ask to have the product delivered. You can pay them over the phone, provide the delivery instructions and we will dispatch a driver to get the product to you.

• We have changed the parking regulations on the 1100-1200 block of Filbert street to turn that into a 20 min. loading zone. If you would like to drive to the Market, you will be able to park on the Filbert Street side (both sides of the street) without penalty for 20 minutes;

• While we have had to pull seating for the public, many of our prepared food merchants are also open for take out and delivery. Additionally, we have created a list of all of the other delivery platforms through which our prepared foods are available. Please check the following link for the latest updates: https://bit.ly/2WgJEHY ;

• We are providing discounted two-hour parking at our two adjacent partner garages (Hilton Garden Inn 11th & Arch, Parkway Garage 12th & Filbert st) if you spend $10 at the Market (note: regular garage rates apply after two hours);

We are committed to maintaining food access through this period and simultaneously keep our customers as safe as possible. We have instituted a number of precautionary measures and have doubled down on those as the crisis deepens.
