There was great a buzz and the stallholders were kept very busy. It was particularly pleasing to see so many families among the crowd and it was great to be able to involve the children by offering them balloons and lollipops.
Having inspected and purchased items from among the wide range of organic and locally grown vegetables, artisan cheese, fresh fish, baked goods, organically produced eggs, beef and lamb, and handcrafted jewellery available, the visitors to the market could also enjoy a delicious cup of either fair trade coffee or hot chocolate while catching up and having a chat with their friends and acquaintances.
