Reading Terminal Market Harvest Festival
Bring the entire family to celebrate the foods of the Pennsylvania harvest at Reading Terminal Market's annual Harvest Festival, October 15, 10am-4pm. Filbert Street will be closed to vehicle traffic and transformed into an urban farm with hay bales and corn stalks. Climb on an authentic farm tractor for a hay ride around the Market, take a walk through a pumpkin patch and enjoy freshly-made donuts, locally-grown seasonal fruits and vegetables, candy apples and more.
