A spruced-up, more cheerful version of the historic Broadway Market's south shed reopened Friday morning, and customers found such new offerings as Polish dishes made from scratch and food cooked while they wait. The mix of four tenants in the market, which dates to 1784, will be familiar to longtime shoppers: Sal's Seafood, Vikki's Fells Point Deli, Lucia's and Sophia's Place. But the space in which the merchants showcase their wares is not only vastly more inviting but also allows them to expand their menus.

There's a lesson to be learned in Fells Point's past and present along its main business street. South Broadway, between Aliceanna and Fleet streets, looks like a scene out of World War II Eastern Europe. On both the east and west sides of the street, the once-familiar rowhouse businesses are gutted. Steel beams support what remains, a thin brick crust of 19th-century brick facades. Stand on Broadway, and you'll see straight through to Regester or Dallas streets. But not for long. After decades of waiting and unkept promises from past developers, residents are now looking to a rebirth here, with 159 new apartments constructed in two sets of blocks behind the old shop fronts.

Konstantine J. "Gus" Prevas, an attorney who specialized in immigration issues and set policy to integrate the Baltimore City Fire Department, died of heart disease Sunday at his Towson home. He was 86. Born in Baltimore and raised on Patterson Park Avenue, he worked alongside his parents, who were immigrants from a village near Sparta, Greece. They ran a Broadway Market business — a soda fountain in the summer months, a confectionery store with fruits and nuts in the pre-Christmas months, and chocolates and Easter candies in the spring.

By day, George Parr was a meat cutter and sausage maker. By night, he was Father Christmas. He donned a white beard and a red suit, and rang sleigh bells throughout the streets of Highlandtown as a 15-year-old. He knocked on doors and posed for pictures. Everyone welcomed Santa into their homes on Christmas Eve. Years later, he arrived on a boat for the first Christmas at Harborplace. The man who insisted that Santa-print shower curtains hang in his bathroom, and that his house be lighted by a thousand miniature lights, died of a stroke Wednesday at his Perry Hall home.

Nowadays, with holiday gift shopping on the agenda, the bakery in the market is a great last place to stop after a day in the little specialty stores and boutiques. Is there anything more comforting after a day in the cold than a hot bowl of soup and warm bread right from the oven?

Perched on the waterfront in the heart of a historic downtown, the centuries-old public market in Maryland's capital city has perhaps the most important ingredient for success: location. But Annapolis Market House, a developer's and a retailer's dream because of its visibility, has hit a nadir. Once a center of civic engagement where crowds gathered for a fill of town gossip, the wood-frame building with a view of a world-renowned harbor now sits nearly empty. Just three tenants remain in the 220-year-old building, which not too long ago buzzed with local residents buying fresh produce and flowers and has been described as "the cafeteria of Annapolis.

Nearly 40 years ago, I learned that Baltimoreans never tire of tales about the stores where they shopped. At that time, I made a small career out of writing about the Bernheimer-Leader retailing empire at Howard and Fayette streets. The building is now an apartment house called the Atrium. About a year ago, I was contacted by Michael Lisicky, whose book on Hutzler's came out last year and whose John Wanamaker ( Philadelphia) opus is due for publication in a few months. A Fells Point resident and member of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Lisicky is writing a history for the Fells Point newsletter about a place called Hecht's Reliable, on the east side of Broadway between Eastern and Fleet streets.

Fells Point is a Polish-style sausage and a heavily frosted cookie, a shot and a beer. It is also a locally sourced, smoked crab cake and a finely crafted slider, an exotic Greek fish-roe spread and artisanal-honey pastry. A new Baltimore food tour hits the town's well-worn culinary cliches and rarified foodie niches alike. It might start with an Ostrowski's sausage and Berger cookie served on the sidewalk, but it winds down with The Black Olive's white tablecloths and taramasalata, Meli's cafe tables and baklava.
