PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Merchants at Reading Terminal Market are preparing early this year to celebrate the holidays with their inaugural Holiday Showcase that starts Friday. 

Reading Terminal Market gets into the holiday spirit this weekend with their first holiday showcase. 

Marketing manager Sarah Levitsky says they’re starting early so that visitors can get ideas for the holidays, including Thanksgiving.

"There will be a table setting with mains and then there will be displays of all of it, the food, everything that people can really see what they are interested in," she explained. 

She admits Reading Terminal Market can be a little overwhelming to navigate.

"I think a lot of people don’t know that we have as much to offer as we do," she said. 

And the goal of this event is to literally lay it all out and set it up like a giant dinner table, an idea brought forward by the merchants. 

"There are about 55 merchants that are participating of our 80 and we’re really excited about it," she added.
