UPDATE: ScrappleFest has been canceled.

This Saturday, January 23rd, scrapple lovers will unite at Reading Terminal Market to celebrate their favorite Pennsylvania Dutch breakfast food.

Starting at 10 a.m., five brands, Leidy’s, Habbersett, Godshall’s, Frank’s, and Vegan Commissary will be serving free samples of their scrapple for the public to enjoy. At 2:30 p.m., the market will hold a contest for the most creative scrapple dish made by merchants. The contest will be judged by Paul Steinke, former General Manager of Reading Terminal Market, award-winning journalist Rick Nichols, and Laura Burkhardt, publisher of Where Magazine. 

The fest goes until 4 p.m., but it’s easy to find yourself at the market longer than planned, especially if one of the bakeries reel you in for a post-scrapple dessert. Here’s hoping the upcoming storm doesn’t get in the way…
