Philly Food shopping/Flower Show Tips

I totally love the Reading Terminal Market - it has been our supermarket for over 25 years now. With the addition of the Fair Food Farmstand, we realized we literally had one stop shopping. That said, there are two times a year we seek to avoid it - The Auto Show and The Flower Show.

Plan ahead. Get your goods from RTM during the "in between times" - 2-5 PM. Do NOT try to shop at lunchtime all week and Saturdays.

If you are attending the Flower Show - we find mid week nights at around 5:00 PM to be the best time to enter - at 5:00ish.

After that - I have two other suggestions for those wanting to food shop: the Italian Market and East Passyunk Avenue (Mr Mancusso's, Green Aisle Grocery, etc.).

For post show Diners: Vietnam - hands down. Go there. Avoid Vietnam Palace across the street
