Food blogger Mac & Cheese photoblogged the Italian Market Festival this past Sunday. In the new, multi-culti Souf Philly, restaurant openings are as likely to be hipster brunch spots or Mexican taquerias as red-sauce Italian joints and the food available at the festival reflects that. Stands selling Mexican corn on the cob (pictured) with mayonnaise, cotija cheese and hot pepper are now at the fest and even the mozzarepa has made its way from its New York hometown. (Though we recommend, if in need of an arepa fix, you instead make the two hour trip to Jackson Heights, Queens for the Arepa Lady. Trust us, she’s worth it.) Of course, Italian food is still available at the festival and there was plenty of roast pork and cheesesteak for everyone.
