Event Details

 

Reading Terminal Market:  Philadelphia’s “Cosmopolitan Canopy”

Prior to the First World War, most Americans did their food shopping at public markets.  The advent of automobiles, the suburbs and the supermarket doomed most of these places, but Philadelphia’s Reading Terminal Market survived, and today is thriving.  Paul Steinke, the General Manager since 2001, will discuss the Market’s colorful history, recent improvements, food trends, and plans for the future.  He will also talk about the Market’s diverse constituency and why it was dubbed a “Cosmopolitan Canopy” by Yale sociologist Elijah Anderson in his 2012 book, The Cosmopolitan Canopy:  Race and Civility in Everyday Life.

 

Speaker: Paul Steinke, General Manager, Reading Terminal Market

A $12.50 registration fee includes lecture and lunch: sandwich (turkey, beef, and vegetarian options available), dessert, and beverage.
