Festa Del Papa

Italians celebrate Father’s Day on March 19th; the same day as St. Joseph’s Day. The “Festa di San Guiseppe” celebrates Joseph, the father of Jesus Christ in the Christian faith, so rather fittingly that is when fathers are honoured in Italy! A special meal of meats, pasta, and sweet treats is usually prepared (Italians don’t really go for a “brunch”). Mercato has everything you need to put together a traditional Father’s Day meal! Check out our deli for some delicious sausage to barbecue, and cheese and cured meats to put together a salumi board. Then stop by the bakery for fresh bread to go with the meal, and of course don’t forget to pick up dad’s favourite desserts!
