To market, to market to buy a....


Well I do occasionally buy a joint of pork but mostly I go to market to buy flowers and vegetables.


I love visiting small markets, I like to peruse the fruit and veg stalls, soaking up the colours and the patter, on a whim buying a heap of new season plums or extra ripe looking peaches. Pineapples just because they were "2ferapound" and cherries because when you see them piled high, there colours glowing how can you resist.


I was pleased to find that our new location boasted a nearby market town with a twice weekly small market. There are usually two fruit and veg stalls but of course I already have my favourite, a good butcher, habberdashery, the lovely olive man who insists you try everything (and who also sells baklava so tooth achingly good that, when accompanied by a tiny cup of strong coffee, it can almost whisk you off to warm pavement cafe in Greece for a few moments)


Then there is the bric-a-brack stall, where I always stop for a few minutes, sometimes there is absolute gold to be found amongst the trinkets on that fine lady's table. One week I managed to pick up some little framed botanical watercolours for mere pence and this framed Punch print makes me smile.


Thank you all so much for your very kind words on the last post, writing that post and reading your kind words and experiences was therapy indeed.
