At the marketplatz- plastic chicken on top of the truck. No question what’s being sold here. (Apologies Stef, don’t look)
We knew there was a story when we saw this market on Chestnut Street. We wondered who Big Chuck was when we saw the sign above the door.
“For decades, Charlie Standfast was an icon of Troy Hill, known in the North Side as a man who took care of his neighbors.” *
The trolley tracks are still visible in the brick street.

Thursday I was photographing some food items for a Things to Eat in Berlin Gallery.
When I saw the wurst stand I went up and asked if it was okay to take a picture.
My plan was to snap the big pile of wurst on the grill. But suddenly I had some generous posing chefs.
Here is photo one
And oops, I realized the man on the left in the photo below wasn’t in my frame and he was standing with a wurst, too. Do over!
I took another shot to include him and suddenly a photo bomb appears behind the three men.
Thank you, gentlemen. You made my day!

Steve and I were on our way to dinner and so that’s why you see the outdoor pumpkin display going both directions.
After dinner we went inside and bought pizzelles. Anise flavored.
I Had to ask about the roots in the first photo-turmeric!
