Nice. Haven't been there in years -- need to get back one day. (I grew up in the burbs but moved away for college; never went back.)

Competent shots but not much in the way of narrative.  Don't fall into the trap of taking "snapshots posing as social commentary".  BTW, locales such as the Reading Terminal Market are not public spaces and so their rules on photography would apply.

If you want to see someone who knows how to introduce drama and an edge to otherwise documentary/journalistic photography, check out the work of Philly Inquirer photographer Eric Mencher.

Your first and fourth photos are wonderful. Especially the first. Your people are going to be as good as your bridge!

Did you get your subjects to sign release forms for the indoor shots? The outdoor shots probably don't require them, but the indoor shots probably do. It's always right and proper to get permission from people when you're shooting them in non-public settings.
In addition to being respectful of others' privacy, it may also protect you from lawsuits.

More on getting permission to shoot on private property--

Before shooting in an indoor marketplace like that I would want to secure written permission from three sources:

1. the building's owner

2. the shopkeeper/tenant

3. everyone I wanted to photograph

If I could not get written permission from all of the above, I wouldn't do the shoot. Period.

Assuming I could get the necessary permissions, I would place clearly visible notices at all entrances to the building that photography is taking place on the premises, that patrons may be asked to sign release forms prior to being photographed and that no photograph will be taken of them without their prior permission. Finally, I would also take out liability insurance, just to be safe.
