Food Day is a nationwide celebration and a movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food. It builds all year long and culminates on October 24. Food Day aims to help people Eat Real. That means cutting back on sugar drinks, overly salted packaged foods, and fatty, factory-farmed meats in favor of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and sustainably raised protein. Food Day envisions shorter lines at fast-food drive-throughs—and bigger crowds at farmers markets.

This annual event involves some of the country’s most prominent food activists, united by a vision of food that is healthy, affordable, and produced with care for the environment, farm animals, and the people who grow, harvest, and serve it.

Reading Terminal Market is taking part in this celebration with their Slow Food Event this Thursday, October 31st from noon to 2 p.m., bringing in local farmers, regional nutritionists, youth farming programs and more. Learn how to chow down on healthy eats without skimping on taste.

Come out and enjoy live music in the market. Piano, jazz, soft rock and more will keep you entertained as you browse the market. Best to of all, it’s FREE.  Click here for more information.
