TOP OF THE MORNIN' - Patrick Gannon, dressed as a leprechaun, will greet customers who walk into his store this morning with a wave of his shillelagh and a pretzel for the kids. "The idea was to get everybody excited about St. Patty's day, even though it's on Sunday," said the all-Irish Gannon, owner of Falsetta's Market, 2200 Pittsfield Blvd. He worked up to it gradually, starting with a hat on Monday and adding a piece of the costume each day. "I had the pipe, then the ears and by Friday I had the full get-up," said Gannon, whose pantaloons and blouse were made by his wife, Jennifer, and his mother, Elizabeth. The shoes, fake ears and long-stemmed pipe were discovered by Gannon's sisters Pat Burns and Jackie Gannon, who manage the store. "The beard is mine and the hat covers my bald head," said the 42-year-old Gannon. Customers Friday and Saturday did double takes upon seeing the 6 feet 2 inch gnome, and sister Jackie promises he'll be back for Easter as a bunny.

TODAY AS THEN: Albert Galardi, owner of the Quality Market since last December, cooks weiners and sausages in the store's smoke house section. This is one of about two local markets that still have such a room within the store.
