No Amish today.

empty stools at reading terminal market

Yesterday as always we got to the market before it began to fill with tourists. We try to have all our shopping done and have a coffee and tea before the lunch rush and crunch begins. Even in summer it can be impossible to find a chair. This visit we came when the Amish weren’t there. It’s a strange experience when their stalls are empty, they occupy such a large portion of the market.

I wandered past the empty spaces. This photo is the Dutch Eating Place where customers wait three deep for a stool to open up.
