Morning Market Madness

What IS it with our historic markets? Is there not one in Philadelphia that doesn’t have its dirty laundry hanging out for everyone to marvel at?

Philly Mag has the wrap-up on the Reading Terminal Market ridiculousness and traces its origins back to the usual Philly political suspects. The Inquirer has a piece on a weird controversy over a cookbook and what amounts to a turf war in the Italian Market… and ends up mentioning some of the same political suspects.

Food and politics are inevitably tied up – in the global sense – but could we be any more parochial in this town? Sheesh.
