Welcome to the Piazza Italian Market blog!  This blog was created to document the set-up of the store.  In January of 2008, my dad and I decided to open a specialty Italian grocery store in Easton, Maryland.  

Easton is the commercial hub of the Eastern Shore and we wanted to be right in the heart of its downtown.  When we were looking around for sites we wanted to be near the historic district but we wanted convenient parking access.  I thought that TalbotTown Shopping Center would be the ideal location.  The presence of the News Center bookstore and Cafe was very important to me.  I think it’s a fixture in the community and I’m glad that now I can walk over there whenever I want!
