This is the ninth in a series of articles about the Broadway Market. This week’s interview features Melanie I. Krygier-LaMastra –a savvy businesswoman with a long vendor history at the market.   And while this lady is “sweet” in every sense of the word, she possesses a clear vision of the market, past, present and future and is happy to express her opinons about all of it.

She multi-tasks around her bakery counter with ease, skills developed through decades of experience.  She possesses a natural gift for treating customers like family.  And although she is a decade beyond retirement age, Melanie Krygier LaMastra is youthfully enthusiastic about running her thriving Broadway Market business.
