Florida Market

July Florida Market booty
Originally uploaded by In Shaw.
All this for $10 bucks! I really enjoyed the Florida Market tour with Elise and Richard (of Frozen Tropics and Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space respectfully). I have been in some of the places before, but there were places on the tour I haven't been to and then went back after the two hour(ish) tour ended.
Not shown is the $40 of stuff bought at A. Litteri's . When I got home I was hot and hungry so I ate the sub and drank the root beer. The rest of it was 4 bottles of wine (including a cheap Prosecco) some frozen stuffed pasta, and dried pasta. If I bought more I ate it and don't remember what it was.
Anyway, good tour, I will definately head back again. Also, though the Councilman Orange wants to use eminant domain to be rid of the place, I don't see him as a danger as he isn't going to win the mayorial race, so it doesn't matter what he thinks. It does matter what Fenty or Cropp and whomever wins the Ward 5 seat thinks. The market, though chaotic and at times smelly is a valuable asset to the northern part of the city.
