The Reading Terminal is Celebrating Educators & Students With Giveaways and Discounts All September!
Reading Terminal Market is kicking off the school year with special deals and giveaways for area teachers and returning college students. The historic public market is holding Teacher Tuesdays every Tuesday in September to celebrate educators and a College Welcome Weekend on September 17 and 18 to welcome new and returning students to the city and the Market.
Teacher Tuesdays will begin on September 7 and happen every Tuesday in September from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Philadelphia educators – and those visiting from other areas – can show their school ID and receive their choice of a free reusable Reading Terminal shopping tote or thermal bag. A special 20% discount for Reading Terminal Market gift cards is also available for teachers where they can purchase $25 gift cards for only $20.
College Welcome Weekend will be held on Friday, September 17 and Saturday, September 18 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Students can show their school ID and receive their choice of a complimentary Reading Terminal Market reusable tote or thermal shopping bag.

“Philadelphia’s teachers have persevered through an incredibly difficult time and we wanted to show our appreciation. Reading Terminal Market prides itself on being a welcoming cornerstone of the community and we hope that educators will come visit us, shop, dine, and enjoy this month and all year long,” said Annie Allman, CEO and General Manager of Reading Terminal Market. “We also wanted to do something special for area college students, whether they’re new to the city or have lived here all their lives. Every Philadelphian should know Reading Terminal and we wanted to create a fun weekend to invite students to come celebrate the start of a new year and get some goodies while they’re here.”
