Leaving a legacy of quality, Schirripa family sells landmark
Meridian Food Market
June 17, the Schirripa brothers unloaded their last truck,
weighed their last oranges on the scale, wrapped up their last
rice ball and bagged their last bag of groceries. Since 1970 the
family has run Meridian Food Market up and down a major
thoroughfare with distinction and great care. And now the time
has arrived for the brothers to retire.
Frank Conte's eulogy for
Field of Dreams- Wood Island Park
my heart and mind the fond memories of Wood Island endure. I
will never forget those care-free summer days when life was
simple and nothing else in the world seem to matter except
having a glove, a ball, a bat, and a field to play on."
