An outdoor market is the perfect place to pick up a few things for picnic in Paris. A baguette here, some cheese at the stall over there, a few fresh strawberries, and you’re ready to find the perfect shady spot along the Seine to watch the world pass by. We stumbled across a few markets while we were in Paris. This beauty was open on a Saturday morning, not far from the Hotel de Ville.

One of the highlights of our stay in Philadelphia was lunch at Reading Terminal Market. Once the train shed for the former Reading Terminal, the market now houses dozens of lunch counters and vendors selling amazing selections of cured meats, handmade cheeses, roasted coffee, preserves, fresh pretzels, bouquets of flowers and on and on.
Absolutely starving, we wandered around the terminal, sampling pierogi, buying bags of coffee, and hitting the bulk bins for chocolate covered malt balls. For lunch, we decided to split up and satisfy our divergent cravings. The Mister indulged in a roast pork sandwich with provolone and broccoli rabe, while I queued up for fancy grilled cheese at MeltKraft. I’ve already got plans to try to make their melted brie and caramelized onion sandwich at home. Yum.
