Little Bags of Dried Italian Herbs in North End

JMTorch Jul 23, 2013 04:31 PM

Hi, I need a little help from the locals. I was in the north end of Boston a few years ago and picked up some bags of dried Italian herbs. Maybe a choice of normal and of spicy ? They were little baggies of mixed herbs out of wooden divided bins, I think they were a $1 a baggie. Little mom and pop type place looked like then had been there for decades. Thanks in advance for your help.

        Yep. There is no place in the North End this could be except Polcari's.

          Do you think it might have been at Polcari's?

                No, you're thinking of behind the fountain at Christopher Columbus Park. Ask for Silvio.
