Parking - It's Easy and Plentiful!
One of the things that makes the Penn Street Market so special is its central location in downtown Reading. We understand that its central location can make it challenging when deciding where to park. Luckily, there are several affordable options available near 5th & Penn Streets, including street parking, parking garages, & parking lots.

The closest garage is located at 4th & Cherry Streets - please take a ticket upon entering, the gate will be up at the exit. Thanks to the Reading Parking Authority for their partnership!
