    More food stalls, a test kitchen and a lecture hall. Very nice.

    There is a kitchen in there already, but it looks like they will be moving it forward. They'd best not mess with it too much.

    I wish they'd bring back the square tables and get rid of those POS round tables they put back by the book store that the old racist black guy runs.

    Finally, some new life in the market. Places need to grow and evolve. I stopped going their regularly because options never changed and I found the quality of most long-time vendors droped as they grew complacent. Excited to try the Banana Pudding and some of the others new carts. Also, curious to see what happens with the market coming soon to the Bourse.

    shit. in the winter months I buy frozen peas, corn, and blueberries there (all of which are local and are pretty good). I also buy some of their expensive but still good hot house stuff and it's nice to have a place with decent hours that sells local stuff.

    I'm bummed too. darn.

    I rarely am able to go to Reading Terminal but went one day this week for lunch with a colleague. Ended up having some vegan take out from a pop-up. There were couple other places that were closed/behind a tarp. But the place was hopping as usual. Also ended up getting some noodles from Sang Kee.

    I have bought some good cheeses at the Fair Food Farm Stand. And also some of their bread spreads from PA farms...one that was a combination of figs and olives was so yummy. I wonder if some other vendors carry that sort of stuff.

    Samples too!

    Reading Terminal Market creates new section for local distilleries | PhillyVoice.com

    Today, Reading Terminal Market unveiled a new section of the historic market: The Pennsylvania Pour Collective.

    There, visitors will find distilled spirits from the region. Currently, Eight Oaks Craft Distillers, Boardroom Spirits, Federal Distilling and New Liberty Distilling have stalls there.

    Pour Collective merchants are able to sell bottles under the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board’s Farmer's Market permit.

    I ordered Thanksgiving ingredients from the RTM last year before they signed up with Mercato. Pickup was easy at a spot near the shoe shine and the restrooms. I went right out the side door where my I had pulled up my car at their instructions. This year, I ordered through Mercato. Again, it was pretty easy. Like last year, I ordered from Godshall's and Iovine's. Unlike last year, I had the option of having the food delivered but I will pick up anyway. (My hub will need his Pearl's lunch fix by then.) Let's see how this works with Mercato.
