Market Open During Construction

OpenDuringConstruction 01 330x222

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!

Martin's Quality Meats and Sausages

Since the 1920s, the name Martin’s has meant meat in Philadelphia. Owner Martin Giunta is a third generation butcher, on both sides of his family! They got their start in South Philly in the Italian Market, but today, the refrigerated cases of their black, white, and red Reading Terminal shop are stocked to the brim with all types of meats: beef, veal, lamb, pork, goat, and even wild game (by special order). You’ll find whole hams, smoked meats, and hard-to-find cuts like pigs’ feet and calves’ liver. More than anything else, though, Martin’s is best known for their fresh, all-natural, preservative-free sausages, all of which they produce themselves in Mickleton, New Jersey. Three generations in and they still use the same, original recipe for their Italian sausage, but they also make a dizzying array to accompany it. Turkey or pork breakfast sausage links fragrant with sage; hot, Italian-style chicken sausage; spiced lamb merguez sausage; beef sausage; and even smoked sausages like Portuguese linguica and German kielbasa. No matter what you’re cooking for dinner, Martin’s can help you with the meat.
