Recommended Posts

Surprisingly little in the way of markets amongst my collection, obviously not shopping enough...

Does not matter where you are that all markets have a wonderful atmosphere. It should be one of the few things that did not change through centuries. Hopefully they can coexist with monsters like Amazon.

Wow, there's a blast from the past! My parents used to take me there regularly in the 50s and 60s. As a small boy I was utterly fascinated by it.

Nice to know Alan. The street had a bit of refresh recently. The place is always buzzing with the cries of sellers and buyers seen throughout the stalls. I moved in 2012 here and see this is great where community still supporting small business amidst the competitor chains.
