Celebrate National Bacon Day At Reading Terminal Market

Also, maybe with a visit to your cardiologist.

Bacon is the food fad that will never die. It is American charcuterie, the best friend of hamburgers, grilled cheese, eggs and pretty much everything else on earth. There is virtually no dish which can not be improved by the skillful application of bacon, and while, really, if you’re living your best life, every day is bacon day, there’s also an official National Bacon Day: September 3.

The vendors at Reading Terminal Market? They’re celebrating the best way they know how. With lots and lots (and lots) of bacon.
