Though they've been open for the past several weeks, the new It's Only Natural Market in the North End is holding their Grand Opening today.
My family and I were there for the ribbon cutting this morning -- what followed was a celebration of North End culture.
Dancers from the Green Street Arts Center got ooh's and aah's from the crowd, shoppers milled around the store tasting samples from local producers, and neighbors in coversation clogged up the aisles.
We even got to see the third floor, which has a great view of Main Street (unfortunately, the foggy weather this morning doesn't do it justice.)
Some of the performers were from the B-Boy class at Green Street. Wow!
