Any kind of food, you name it, it's here! Great place for lunch.... Be aware of the hours, it's usually closed by 6, and lots of the food places close about an hour prior.

I ate at Pearl’s Oyster Bar in the RTM. Food was great and service was friendly. There’s also a fruit market in there and several places to get dessert as well. Highly recommend if you are in the Convention Center area.

As always, this visit to RTM was fantastic. The Original Turkey was my stop, and despite the usual trouble finding a seat during a busy lunch, everything was perfect for my wife and I. This will always be a stop whenever we visit Philadelphia!

No, they do not but it is easily accessible on public transportation (which I recommend) or there are lots nearby & on street parking (be careful of the PPA- they love to give tickets)

Many of the food vendors have counter service, but not all. There a a few areas with open seating for visitors to bring their take out meals to and enjoy eating while taking in all the sites of the market.
