Mel visited the Broadway Market and it was her first time to see all the wonderful things you can get there from butter lambs, to candy, flowers, to all kinds of foods and non-food items. The Easter bunny is even going to make a stop there today and tomorrow.
Kathy Peterson, Broadway Market spokesperson says today is the busiest day of the year for them and they have everything you need for your Easter dinner at the Broadway Market. She says the Easter Bunny arrives at 12pm today and will be there until 6pm today and will be back tomorrow (Saturday) from 12 – 4pm.
Adam Malczewski, owner of Malczewski’s says they just sold out of their butter lambs. The butter lambs are so popular because it is a holiday tradition and people grew up with them. The tradition started in Poland a long, long time ago and was brought over with the immigrants he says. It has a lot of symbolism. The red ribbon signifies the blood of Christ and the Hallelujah flag is for peace on earth.
