Market Open During Construction

If you have been through the Market East neighborhood recently, you might have noticed that there is scaffolding on the 12th Street side of the Market (and a little on Arch Street and Filbert Street as well).  The convention center has begun the arduous process of replacing the roof from the Reading Terminal Headhouse on Market Street all the way to the Race Street side of the convention center (and include the Market's roof).  The target date of completion is November 2017.

The good news is that the Market will remain open as usual throughout the construction (all 10 sets of doors are still accessible).  So, please come shop and dine as usual!

Bassetts Ice Cream

America’s oldest ice cream company—established in 1861—Bassetts Ice Cream was the first merchant to sign a lease at the Reading Terminal Market in 1892 and is still owned and operated by the same family today. Their menu of more than 40 different flavors includes something for everyone, from the most traditional (they make a killer vanilla) to the more adventurous (Cinnamon or Matcha Green Tea, anyone?). Made with cream and milk sourced from a co-op of dairy farmers in western Pennsylvania, each flavor is hand crafted and tested to perfection. Stop by for a cone, cup, pint, sundae, or milkshake, and factor in some extra time to check out the original marble counter, the hand-painted mural surrounding the store’s mezzanine, and the historical video footage from when Bassetts Ice Cream was produced in the Market’s basement.
