PHILADELPHIAReading Terminal Market will host its 4th Annual Party for the Market on Saturday, February 22, 2014 from 7:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Formerly known as the “Valentine to the Market,” organizers have re-branded the event to appeal to a greater audience and incorporate some new, exciting activities. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Reading Terminal Market Preservation Trust to preserve the Market for future generations, help fund long-term improvements and be used to connect the Market to Philadelphia’s performing arts community.

The Party will feature dancing, continuous live entertainment on two stages, open bars featuring specialty cocktails, beer and wine, and a diverse selection of delicious foods and desserts from nearly 40 of the Market’s revered merchants. The evening will also provide some innovative activities for guests, including a sketch artist offering on-the-spot personal portraits, a fun rapid-fire photo booth, “Adventure Tastings” of exotic and unusual fruits, veggies and cheeses, and much more. Attendees can also visit the “Social Stop” to have their photo taken with their own smart phones and immediately post, Tweet, or check in on social media with the hashtag #LoveRTM.
