If you’re newly engaged and looking for a unique location for a wedding in the Philadelphia area, The Reading Terminal Market is the place for you. With a central location across from the Pennsylvania Convention Center and the Philadelphia Downtown Marriott, it is not only a special gem in the city of brotherly love, but conveniently accessible for guests as well.

One of the oldest and largest public markets in the United States, the Reading Terminal Market has been housed in it’s location since 1893 and is a National Historic Landmark. Some amazing vendors that provide delicious fare that we absolutely love are Pearl’s Oyster Bar, Fox & Son’s Fancy Corndogs, Little Thai Market, and Beck’s Cajun Cafe. This unique market is a staple in Philadelphia and is world-renowned. How cool would it be to get married there?!

The Reading Terminal market can house up to 4,000 guests for a single event, and guests will enjoy an after-hours experience while enjoying the fruits of the market. Events are held in The Center Court to create an interactive dining experience for your wedding guests.

The basic cost of the event covers a large range of services such as providing chairs, tables, linens, security, and, of course, the food! Given the option of creating food stations with the restaurants of your choice or allowing guests to graze at specific restaurants, the dining experience will be one that is hard to forget.

This amazing Philadelphia location provides the perfect backdrop for any wedding, and can be thought of as an open drawing board. It’s time to create a perfect event where your imagination in design is the only limit. Are you ready?
