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!

12th Street Cantina

12th Street Cantina has been serving up authentic Mexican fare in the Reading Terminal Market since 1982. Their award-winning guacamole is among the best in Philly, their tortillas are made fresh daily, and their produce is locally sourced. The menu includes modern Mexican classics—tacos, burritos, tortas, enchiladas, salads, and, of course, tortilla chips and salsa—plus daily inspirations crafted by Chef George. If you’re in the area on Saturday or Sunday morning, you won’t want to miss the Cantina’s Huevos Rancheros, just one of their delicious weekend breakfast options. They have their own secluded seating area, too, which comes in handy when the Market is especially crowded. And for those who are inspired to make their own Mexican delicacies at home, 12th Street Cantina offers a full line of Mexican groceries, from tortillas and queso fresco, to dried chiles and other imported seasonings.
