‘Enjoy Good Food, Family Fun, and Hayrides’

Fall has approached and it’s time for pumpkins, Halloween, fabulous foods, hayrides, and that means Harvest time!

Head over to the Reading Terminal Market with the family to celebrate the foods of the Pennsylvania harvest at the Market’s 16th Annual Harvest Festival on October 15 from 10 am to 4 pm. You’ll get to sample locally grown fall fruits and vegetables from the festival while savoring some delicious barbecue. There will be turkey legs, grilled pork ribs, pumpkin humus, pulled pork, candy apples, harvest cookies, jewelry and crafts, skincare and lip balm, a beer garden and much much more.

Enjoy a hayride outside the Market door’s on Filbert Street. This will be your chance, both kids and adults, to climb on an authentic farm tractor for a hay ride around the Market. You can also take a walk through the pumpkin patch and even a photo with the family or friends.

Looking for a special treat? Stop by Beck’s Cajun Cafe for some special fall special treats such as: Bacon Apple Bread Pudding, Grilled Baby Back Ribs with Whiskey BBQ Sauce, Pumpkin Funnel Cake and Cinnamon & Spice Hot Chocolate! Also, head on over to Jack McDavid’s Down Home Diner for some of his famous ribs or pulled chicken.

Don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes, because from 11 am – 3 pm there will be live music by Bobby Mansure’s Stars & Stripes band, which will set the stage for a fun-filled afternoon in the city.

Special this year: Guess the Weight of the Giant Pumpkin contest!  Visit the giant pumpkin in Center Court, guess the weight of the pumpkin for a chance to win a $100 gift card to the Market.  The contest ends October 28th.

Important Tip: Filbert Street will be closed to traffic to for the authentic hay ride around the market and for the pumpkin patch.
