food related destinations
Will be in Philly from Fri to Sun. One lunch will be John's roast pork. Dinners are at Vetri and Serpico. On Sunday, we'll probably go to Reading Terminal in the morning and then depart. What are some food related attractions that we can check out (markets or food shops)?
What time of the year are you coming ? There are some outdoor farmers markets open if it is late spring or summer. The farmers market at Headhouse Square is great on Sundays if you are here during the right time of year.
DeBruno's in Center City is a high end food/cheese shop.
A trip to the Italian Market might be worthwhile where cheese, butchers, and bakers abound.
And you cannot miss the wonderful State run liquor stores <sarcasm off>.
Talula's Daily in the Washington Square area is a fun place for wine and cheese. I'm blanking on other suggestions besides those added below. Reading Terminal and the Italian Market are the big two and DiBruno's is the cleaner, upscale experience.
Off the beaten path. http://www.krakusmarket.com it is about 3 miles from center city.

Or this http://www.maidookini.com/e/index.htm, outside of the city, but has a shuttle!
And yes, Claudio's and DiBruno's in the Italian Market DiBrunos does more all around gourmet, Claudio's more Italian. Also Mancuso's down on East Passyunk Ave for fresh mozzarella and ricotta (made there)
