Besides being able to pick up the original muffuletta sandwich, you will also find many items available for souvenirs.They close daily at 5 p.m. so get over there early before the day slips away.

We tried an original mufaletta today. The line was all the way to the front door, but moved very quickly. The sandwiches are premade and the clerks are very efficient. A half sandwich was enough for my husband and me. Everything about this sandwich is...More

well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Thanks, but I found out by calling them. It is $19.50 plus tax. They are kinda pricey.
