Get Your Fresh Produce Near Home at Reading Terminal Market


As health concerns remain a top priority, many of us have shifted how we do our food shopping and adapted to new safety protocols. While trips to the grocery store may be fewer and farther between, you can still get fresh food right near your Crane Chinatown apartment, all while remaining safe and socially distant, as you’re located just minutes from one of the region’s most renowned food markets.

The Reading Terminal Market is an ideal spot to get all of your shopping done in one place—and safely. The expansive market, just a half-mile from your Crane Chinatown apartment, has been open throughout the pandemic, allowing the venue to perfect its approach to safe shopping. Social distancing guidelines are posted throughout the market, which is large enough that you can easily do your shopping without worries of overcrowding. And, with so many merchants all under one roof, you can be in and out quickly.

There are more than 80 vendors at Reading Terminal Market, so no matter what your shopping list consists of, you can find it here. Fresh veggies and fruits from producers throughout the region are a staple, as are quality meats and cheese, bread and pastries made on site, and a wide range of sweets. Some of the city’s most famous restauranteurs have set up shop within the Reading Terminal Market so, if you’re not comfy with a full sit-down, indoor dining experience yet, you can simply swing by the market to grab your favorites to go.

While food is the main course at the market, it’s also home to a number of vendors that sell handcrafted goods, Philly-focused gifts, home décor and more, so you can spruce up your Crane Chinatown apartment for the fall or start your holiday shopping a little early. And best yet, it’s so close to home that you can walk to and from with your purchases and enjoy a little fresh fall air along the way!
