My Husbands very favorite store there is the Pennsylvania Macaroni Co. He will shop in there for hours.
He is of Italian heritage and they sell a lot of goods that the Italians want.
If you look through the door, you will see barrels. They are full of nuts, beans, grains, all kinds of things.
This is what my Hubs goes for, the balls of cheese. He loves the sharp pravalone. They also have a great hard bread that he buys everytime we go.
Speaking of bread, I am going to leave you with a great recipe for Italian Feather Bread that I got from my friend who writes The Desparate Cook. This bread turns out great everytime I make it.
