We are planning a trip to Philly and to go first to Reading terminal and then burger.org and end the day at the please touch museum... Is there anything at all supervised in RTM? (i think i remember reading the le bus bakery is certified but not 100% sure?) Any help please?

    I'm pretty sure the only kosher items are fresh fruits and vegetables.

    If you want good kosher baked goods in Center City try Homemade Goodies by Roz's 510 South 5th Street, Philadelphia, PA, . http://www.homemadegoodiesbyroz.com/

    It is close to the original Burger.org

      I don't think anything is supervised at RTM but it's still worth a visit. +1 Roz's, and here is a good up to date list of kosher restaurants and takeout in Center City:

        Great Link barryg! I am in Phila often. I have eaten at Mama's Vegetarian and it is great.

        It's fun to walk through the market, the picturesque Amish-run booths are in the northwest corner. But I don't think you'll find much that is kosher beyond the fresh produce. There is a little gourmet grocer where you can find some packaged goods and lots of OU-certified upscale crackers, presumably to eat with the mile after mile of artisanal cheese the stalls are selling. But from a kosher perspective, this place is for chowish window shopping, before you head to a kosher restaurant.
