Rich in History - Richer in Flavor

America’s oldest ice cream company—established in 1861—Bassetts Ice Cream was the first merchant to sign a lease at the Reading Terminal Market in 1892 and is still owned and operated by the same family today. Their menu of more than 40 different flavors includes something for everyone, from the most traditional (they make a killer vanilla) to the more adventurous (Cinnamon or Matcha Green Tea, anyone?).

Made with cream and milk sourced from a co-op of dairy farmers in western Pennsylvania, each flavor is hand crafted and tested to perfection. Stop by for a cone, cup, pint, sundae, or milkshake, and factor in some extra time to check out the original marble counter, the hand-painted mural surrounding the store’s mezzanine, and the historical video footage from when Bassetts Ice Cream was produced in the Market’s basement.

    Very customer friendly. It would have been nice if the driver had offered to help carry the delivery inside because it was 4 very large (2.5 pound each) tubs of ice cream, but I got other help! A very good experience overall.
