This week’s Photo Friday (#FriFotos) theme is FESTIVALS. Chris and I used to live only a half block from the Italian Market in Philadelphia. Each year on the second weekend of May, we always looked forward to the Italian Market Festival, where the 6+ blocks of the market would be shut off from traffic, and all the shops would set up special tables outside and serve up more specialty food than you can think of.
My favorites were always the roasted pig at Esposito’s and the cannolis (and everything else) at Isgro bakery.
Also, I have to plug my favorite coffee shop, Anthony’s Italian Coffee House (in the background in the picture above) – pronounced Ant-nee’s for the native South Philly residents.
