Christmas Eve day a busy time for Boardman Italian market

Posted: Updated:

BOARDMAN TWP., Ohio - There was a line out the door at Lariccia's Italian Market Place in Boardman when it opened Tuesday morning.

That's because Christmas Eve is one of the busiest days of the year for the Italian market place.

In keeping with tradition, the family owned business prepares a variety of seafood for people wishing to enjoy the Feast of the Seven Fishes, an Italian-American Christmas Eve tradition.

"We want to keep that alive. This stuff, I didn't like when I was young, and ate this every year. I was sick of it. Now, I can't wait for it. It's something that brings back memories. It's a comfort food. It really is," said Tessa Allegretto, from Lariccia's Italian Market Place.

The menu this year included fried haddock, cod, smelts, shrimp and squid.
