Fig Leaves, Food and Fun at The Italian Market Festival

My husband A.D. and I spent a glorious afternoon soaking up the sun, listening to live music, and eating our way through the Italian Market Festival that took place in Philadelphia over May 15 and 16.

We enjoyed food from a few of our local favorites – marinated mozzarella from DiBruno’s and cannoli from Anthony’s – and also some out-of-town goodies like sweet kettle corn and funnel cake.

There was a picture board set up so of course I had to have a photo of A.D. as Michelangelo’s David. The proceeds from the photos went to the Italian Market Association.

The festival also showcased a diverse section of artists: we ogled wooden boxes from Natural Renaissance and leather bracelets by Fisticuffs. We purchased a cilantro scented bar from Volta Soap and organic treats from Veronica's Doggie Delights.

Dog treats? Yes! Stop back soon to meet our new family member.
