Of course, you can purchase Pittsburgh Penguins, Pirates and Steelers shirts, hats , etc here at the strip !
Below is some of the breads, roll, etc. available, too !
A favorite store of mine shown below.. The smoked swiss cheese is delicious ! And a big variety of cheeses, olives and meats are sold here and yes, I had permission from the lady weighing the cheese to take photos !
Shown below is some of the seafood sold at Wholey's.. Look at the size of those crab legs ! They also have live fish you can purchase swimming in tanks. And I believe they clean them for you also.

Fresh crabs anyone ~
Fresh herbs at a great price and an old fire engine house at the Strip.
This section of Pittsburgh is one of my favorites. The Strip offers lots of fresh foods such as breads, cookies, great restaurants and a variety of foods from other parts of the world such as Italy ! My favorite, of course. I had to buy a package of fresh Italian Love Knot Cookies.. anise flavored .. delicious and fresh, too.
There is a place out of the weather where artists can rent a spot and sell their creations and paintings.
Lots of vendors set up on the sidewalks on Saturdays especially during nice weather.
It was a great weekend in Pittsburgh with nice weather and time spent with my sister. We also went to a couple shopping complexes , Robinson Towne and The Waterworks and McNight Road where there are lots of stores ! And we were able to get in a couple long walks around her neighborhood.
So, back to sewing I go...
