Our World Tuesday
My Corner of the World
August 2009 - Philadelphia PA
While in Philadelphia for a few days in 2009, we stayed in a hotel right behind the Reading Terminal Market.
I was researching the history of the market and I loved this service mentioned on their site.
As soon as we checked in we headed out for a Philly cheese steak sandwich!!
Beiler’s is owned and operated by multiple generations of the same Pennsylvania Dutch family, using recipes and techniques that have been passed down for hundreds of years. Though the donuts draw the biggest crowds—especially on Saturdays, when the line often winds out the door and along the Arch Street side of the market—the barrel pickles and traditional PA Dutch puddings and salads at this stand are also worth the stop, all made with natural ingredients and served with a smile.
We went back on the Saturday and had breakfast.
On Saturday the festival moves outdoors to create an urban farm. The 1100 block of Arch Street is closed to traffic and a petting zoo with sheep, goats, chickens, donkeys, calves, horses and pigs fill the street. Amish buggy rides and horse drawn wagon rides around the Market, as well as country and bluegrass bands, round out the entertainment.
