Pennsylvania General Store
Housed inside the Reading Terminal Market, this gourmet food and souvenir shop specializes in locally made sweets, snacks, and crafts, all of which are available individually and in elaborate gift baskets. Established in 1987, the store contains wood-and-glass display cases filled with everything from Zitner chocolate eggs to Hope’s freshly baked cookies and Asher’s milk chocolate toffee pretzels. The shop also stocks a wide variety of Pennsylvania Dutch goods, including Bauman’s apple butter, pure maple syrup, and shoofly pie. Souvenir options range from coffee mugs to quilted potholders.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
