I love markets.
I love the feeling of entering an empty room knowing it will soon be filled with the nervous energy of stallholders setting up their stalls.
I love that expectant calm just before the doors open.
I love the excited noise of sellers selling and happy customers making purchases.
I love the sugar high that comes from delicious market stall cupcakes (or lemon tarts***)
I love the conversations.
I LOVE the market community.
I love the pack up (some days, I really love the pack up) and ‘thankyous’ and ‘see you next times'.
I love the satisfaction of closing the door on an empty room at the end of a successful day.
It's market day TODAY with Made 'n Thornbury Craft Market !
And then on April 5th it's Northern Regards Artisan Market day again....
Just as well I love it.
