(By Christina Abt) This is the fourth in a series of Broadway Market at the Crossroads interviews. This week the series focuses on a long time vendor who not only works at the market, but calls it home.
Irena Woszczak has operated a business at the Broadway Market for 18 years, yet she doesn’t sell meats, produce or ethnic specialty items. Rather, this veteran vendor operates a full service, eye glass store under the banner of Broadway Opticians. In talking to this forthright woman there is no doubt that she has an extremely clear vision of the state of the market, and some strong opinions about what needs to be done to correct the historic landmark’s problems.
