Weckerly Ice Cream

Established in 2012, Weckerly Ice Cream started in the back of a neighborhood cafe in West Philadelphia. This “micro-creamy” brand strives to serve ice cream flavors and ingredients that are both unique and bold. It all comes from a tiny dairy plant where they not only make their ice cream but pasteurize the milk, cream, eggs, and sugar to create their own base for each of their recipes.

The Franklin Fountain

This childhood home inspired ice cream shop serves an experience steeped in ideals, drizzled with drollery, and sprinkled with the forgotten flavors of the American past. You can find your favorite ice cream flavors such as strawberry, cookies and cream, chocolate, and more with a waffle cone or classic sugar cone. 

Reading Terminal Market

As a home to over 60 merchants and vendors, including restaurants, Reading Terminal Market is a foodie’s dream. You can find fresh produce, meats, cultural foods, ice cream shops, and juicery options.
