Neighborhood Photo: 1970s Salem Food Market


Today’s photo is of the Salem Food Market in the early 1970s from Dirty Old Boston where a comment also indicates the same family runs a “Salem St. Market” on Moody St. in Waltham.

The same contributor includes a hanging meat photo from the North End on what also looks like Salem Street.

    Matt, thank you for posting this. This was my dad’s store. Time sure goes by. Both he and my mom have passed away but not the loving memories of two people who sacrificed their whole lives for the love of their children and grandchildren. They lived by the motto, “Family First!”

    My children still speak about them constantly and now share their stories with their own children, my grandchildren.

    Thanks again, and Merry Christmas, and Buon Natale!
