By 1915 a second generation of Italian Americans organized a business association due to competing nearby markets. The Association's officers' ancestries hailed from central and southern Italy, and eastern Sicily; other members also were Americans but of northern and eastern European. Lebanese and Asian heritage, Italian foods and products always dominated. This market is the foundation for the region's major Italian food manufacturers and purveyors. Text & design by Celeste A. Morello, MS. MA in 2008. The honored founding families; *Baldi *Bonuomo *Cappucco *DiBruno *Dicrecchio *D'Orazio *Esposito *Giordano *Giunta *Grassia *Jacovini *Maggio *Sarcone *Vellios
